5 years of relentless war has brutally crushed the people of Yemen, swiftly leading to what the UN has described as the worst humanitarian crisis in the world for the last 2 years. In fact, Yemen is in a truly critical state as the situation has declined even further this year and almost 80% of its 28 million population are now in need of aid.
- Every 10 minutes, a child dies in Yemen – at least 85,000 under 5-year olds have starved to death to date
- Almost 20 million people need basic healthcare, water and access to sanitation facilities, with over 14 million in acute need
- Over 3 million people have been left displaced by conflict
Families in Yemen are living a mammoth nightmare. In a short space of time, their lives have been changed beyond recognition and now every day is a fight for survival. The entire nation is at significant risk and is dependent upon help from the outside world. Please don’t underestimate the impact even a small donation can make on someone’s life in Yemen – they need all our prayers and help during these tragic times.
