Emergency Alert: War has ripped through what was already the poorest country in the Arab world. A staggering 18 million people are now in dire need of aid. One in three of Yemen’s young children are severely malnourished. And a staggering 7 million children go to bed hungry every night.
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.
Despite the formidable challenges in humanitarian access and in extremely dangerous conditions, our teams have been working tirelessly to provide food, water and vital healthcare to families, and help get children back in the classroom to ensure that an entire generation of children’s futures are not lost.
Our teams are on the ground, working round the clock in the line of fire to deliver food, water and vital medical supplies to the children who need them most. We’ve reached 1.1 million people in Yemen, including 635,000 children so far.
Nobody knows when the next crisis will strike, but your support helps Save the Children provide assistance in the critical first hours and days of an emergency when children need us most.
Save the Children has been working in Yemen since 1963. The first international aid group in Yemen, we work nationally and locally to promote and protect children's rights, with programs in education, protection and survival.
