After eight years of brutal war, children in Yemen have never needed you more.
Yemen’s national socioeconomic systems are on the brink of collapse. Ongoing conflict, massive displacement, and unpredictable climate changes have left families susceptible to outbreaks of communicable diseases.
Millions of children lack access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene services, causing the country to experience frequent cholera, measles, diphtheria, and other vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks.
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.
Children of Yemen need your help
to have a chance to survive.
Only 15 per cent of children are eating the minimum acceptable diet for survival, growth and development.
2.7 million children are out of school, leaving them even more vulnerable.
Only 50 per cent of health facilities are functional leaving children without adequate access to healthcare
How Will My Donation Help Children?
UNICEF is on the ground working around the clock to protect children in Yemen.
Since the start of the crisis, we have helped to reach more than 4 million children with over 3,000 tonnes of life-saving supplies, including emergency food, safe drinking water and health care supplies.
We need to do more. As the situation gets worse more and more children need our help.
We simply don’t have enough funds to reach every child in urgent need. We need to act now before it’s too late.
With your help we can continue to provide essential life-saving supplies to the children who need it the most.
