Yemen Needs You

Yemen is one of the poorest and driest countries in the world that is located in the Middle East and borders Saudi Arabia and Oman. Due to the ongoing conflict, repeatedly over the past 19 months, the people of Yemen have been robbed of their lives, their hope and their right to live in dignity. Thousands have been killed, tens of thousands have been injured, and more than three million have been forced to leave their homes. Yes, Yemen may just be another country suffering from poverty and the effects of conflict but it DESERVES OUR URGENT ATTENTION! Here is why:

- Yemen has a population of 26 million Yemenis of which, 21.2 million are in need of some form of humanitarian assistance.

- At risk are migrants from the Horn of Africa and over 3 million internally displaced - nearly half of whom are children.

- 14 million people are food insecure of which 7 million are so severely food insecure that they do not know where their next meal is coming from.


Children are often the worst off in these situations and in Yemen it's the same:

- Of the two million people who are malnourished nationwide, 370,000 are children.

- Since March 2015, 10,000 children under the age of five have perished from preventable diseases as a result of the sharp decline in the availability of immunizations and remedies for diarrhoea and pneumonia.
