In Yemen 12 Million Children Need Urgent Help
After seven years of brutal war, children in Yemen have never needed you more.
The country is in the grip of a terrible food crisis that is now getting even worse because of the war in Ukraine.
Yemen is directly affected by the war in Ukraine as the country imports 30% of its wheat from Ukraine.
Now that a vital source has been lost, Yemen’s food prices are skyrocketing and supplies are running low.
The situation is now so bad that nearly all of Yemen’s children – 4 out of 5 – need urgent humanitarian help to survive.
Twice the number of all the children in Ireland – over 2 million – are dangerously malnourished and need immediate treatment, while more than 400,000 are now facing starvation.
Children in Yemen are so close to death. They need your help now.
