Current situation

An estimated 85,000 children under the age of five have died due to acute malnutrition in the last three years.

22 million people, 75% of Yemen’s population are currently in need of assistance.

18 million, 60% of the population are in need of access to a regular food source.

16 million, 56% of the population are in need of regular basic healthcare.

Millions of people in Yemen are on the verge of starvation. A famine described as the worst the world has seen in 100 years, looms over a country torn apart by war. Over 80% of the population are struggling to find enough food and water to survive each day. More than 600 medical facilities have closed meaning there is little or no treatment available for those who have injuries or are malnourished. The situation is incredibly bleak and without essential aid, it will only get worse.

Please help the people in Yemen.
