Right now 11.3 million children in Yemen are in danger

Yemen is facing a major humanitarian crisis. A devastating conflict has left children and families in urgent need of food, water and medical supplies. Since the conflict began, an average of six children have been killed or maimed every day. No place in Yemen is safe for children.

At least one child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen from malnutrition and preventable diseases

Malnutrition in Yemen is at an all-time high. Hundreds of thousands of children are suffering from severe malnutrition and urgently need life-saving food to survive.

Millions more children lack access to clean water and sanitation facilities and are in desperate need of basic health care. Right now, children are facing a deadly cholera outbreak and the health system is near collapse.

This crisis is having a devastating effect on children’s lives. We must act now to protect Yemen’s children from the dangers of war, disease and hunger.

How will my donation help children?

Unicef is on the ground working around the clock to protect children in Yemen. Since the start of the crisis, we have helped to reach more than 4 million children with over 3,000 tonnes of life-saving supplies, including emergency food, safe drinking water and health care supplies.

However we simply don’t have enough funds to reach every child in danger. We need to act now before it’s too late.

With your help we can continue to provide essential life-saving supplies to the children who need it the most.

Your support will also help to ensure that displaced children do not miss out on an education. Through Unicef-supported schools and child-friendly spaces, children can continue their schooling and receive psychosocial care and support to help them cope with distress and trauma.
