Yemen is still suffering
The conflict in Yemen is now entering its fourth year and hopes for peace in the country seem very remote.
Conflict has resulted in almost 2.2 million children suffering from malnourishment, and the country is in danger of slipping into a man-made famine.
It is estimated that every ten minutes, a child perishes from preventable causes. This is because much of the country’s infrastructure – hospitals, bridges, transport – has been ruined. Three quarters of the country is reliant on humanitarian aid.
There is in effect no system of providing safe drinking water, meaning there are widespread outbreaks of diseases like cholera affecting over a million people. Because access to medical care is severely reduced, this causes countless preventable deaths.
Human Appeal has been working in Yemen since 2014. We have built a team of dedicated staff and a network of partnerships with other NGOs in the country. This means that we can deliver real lifesaving solutions to the problems that beset the civilian population.Please Help our Work Saving Lives in Yemen
