According to UNICEF, a Yemeni child dies every 10 minutes. You can make a difference by donating to the groups we've listed below who are doing life-changing work on the ground.
"Violence has erupted across Yemen—and children are in danger. UNICEF staff are on the ground helping children caught in conflict around the world, but we urgently need your help to do more. Your support will help deliver the clean water, food, and medical supplies that are desperately needed to save lives."
"An already dire humanitarian situation in Yemen continues to get progressively worse, with both man-made conflicts and natural issues causing conditions to deteriorate...According to the World Food Program, an estimated 14.4 million people in Yemen are food insecure."
"Oxfam has been in Yemen for more than 30 years, working with government authorities, as well as civil society organizations, to improve the water and sanitation services, and livelihoods of thousands of people living in poverty."
"Years of conflict, drought and instability have left thousands of Yemenis struggling to get food, water and medicine. The continued airstrikes and fighting on the ground are putting many innocent lives in peril. Despite the danger and obstacles, we are supplying hospitals and clinics with medicines and emergency supplies to treat the wounded and sick. But there is so much more to do."
"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."
