About Yemen

Children in Yemen are facing a massive crisis. Volatile armed conflicts and rapidly shifting frontlines have been happening in the midst of growing poverty and an already large-scale humanitarian crisis. As the conflict rages on, the needs of vulnerable children continue to grow. Boys and girls are growing up in the poorest country in the Arab world with little opportunity for education and development.
