The Race to Protect Children from the Consequences of Coronavirus
COVID-19 is in Yemen, in Syria, in the Rohingya refugee camps and around the world. Children who were already at rock bottom now face the devastating consequences of the pandemic.
Millions of children already have limited or no access to healthcare, clean water, and food. They depend on humanitarian aid to survive. If COVID-19 cuts their lifeline to outside aid, the consequences for these children could be unimaginable. Many will pay the heaviest price of all, with their lives.
In Yemen alone, over 12 million children are already in need of humanitarian assistance. 360,000 children are severely malnourished. If the food and medicine they need is delayed, these children will likely die.
