In Yemen 12 Million Children Need Urgent Help

Right now, children in Yemen are facing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Health systems are collapsing, medicine, clean water and food are all in short supply.

Since the conflict began, an average of six children have been killed or maimed every day. No place in Yemen is safe for children.

Every Ten Minutes a Child Dies From Preventable Causes

Nearly 330,000 children in Yemen are suffering from severe acute malnutrition and urgently need life-saving food to survive.

Millions more children lack access to clean water and sanitation facilities and are in desperate need of basic health care.

This crisis is having a devastating effect on children’s lives. We must act now to protect Yemen’s children from the dangers of war, disease and hunger.



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.
