'Undeniably the world's worst humanitarian crisis by far'
Four years of conflict in Yemen has caused the world’s worst humanitarian crisis: at least 6,800 civilians have lost their lives, with thousands more injured. 80% of the population is in need of aid, children are dying of acute malnutrition, and the country is suffering the worst ever outbreak of cholera.
The United Nations warns that as many as 13m people in Yemen are facing starvation, ‘The Worst Famine in the World for 100 Years’
"Yemen is on the brink of a major catastrophe," said Mark Lowcock, UN Humanitarian Chief.
"In Aden, I met emaciated children so malnourished they could barely open their eyes…Humanitarian assistance helps many of these children recover. But I also heard heartbreaking stories of children relapsing again and again because their families simply can't afford food or proper medical care."
Human Appeal has teams working in Yemen to meet the urgent needs of children there. Be a lifeline and help them by acting today.
Yemen’s Cholera Epidemic Worsening
In the first six months of 2019, Yemen has seen more suspected cholera cases than in the whole of 2018. Of 440,000 suspected cholera cases, 203,000 are children. Malnourished children are three times as likely to die from cholera infection. Compared with the end of June 2018, nine times more people have died so far in 2019.
