Yemen Children's Crisis

Right now, more than 11 million children are in danger in Yemen. They desperately need food, water and medical supplies

Yemen is one of the worst places to be a child right now

Ongoing conflict has left the country in the middle of a major humanitarian crisis. Children and families are in urgent need of food, water and medical supplies.

Almost every boy and girl in Yemen is in dire need of humanitarian assistance – that’s more than 11 million children.

 

An average of six children have been killed or maimed every day, since the conflict began. No place in Yemen is safe for children.

A bus attack on August 10th, was the worst single attack on children in Yemen. 21 children were killed and 35 injured. UNICEF responded by providing medical supplies to save the lives of the children who reached hospital - including IV fluids, wound dressing materials, ointments and antibiotics
