Donate your zakat
Support children in Yemen
As you come together to share, reflect and celebrate in the holy month of Ramadan, please remember the children in urgent need of support. Donate your Zakat to help Unicef be there for the hundreds of thousands of children in Yemen at their time of greatest need.
Yemen is currently facing the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. Over 24 million people, including over 12 million children, are in need of humanitarian assistance as a result of the conflict, which begun in 2015. The crisis has increased the number of cases of severe acute malnutrition and cholera. This, along with damage to schools and hospitals, means that children in Yemen are at their most vulnerable.
Children are malnourished and facing disease
Malnutrition in Yemen is at an all-time high. 360,000 children under 5 are currently suffering from severe acute malnutrition. In 2019, the number of cases of diarrhoea and cholera have also increased. Children requiring treatment is on the rise, and the disrupted health facilities cannot cope. During the conflict, schools and hospitals have been severely damaged, leaving 4.7 million children in Yemen in need of educational support.
Will you help us to deliver life-saving aid for children and families in Yemen?
Unicef is on the ground right now across Yemen. Aid workers are providing life-saving food, clean water, and delivering crucial vaccinations. Unicef is also providing temporary schools and offering emergency cash transfers. This is a lifeline that helps families buy essential items and send their children to school.
Conflict since 2015 has led to the internal displacement of 3.6 million people in Yemen, including 2 million children. This is a time of urgent need. The support your Zakat can bring this Ramadan will change children's lives.
