A year of conflict in Yemen has left almost 90% of children in desperate need of humanitarian aid.

Half the country is on the brink of famine and the health system is at breaking point. This is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world right now but not enough people are talking about it.

With roads and ports blocked to aid, one in three Yemeni children under five are now acutely malnourished. Almost 10 million have no access to safe water, and nearly half of all children are out of school.

Our teams are on the ground, showing children that they are not forgotten. Help us do more.

How your donation will help children

Through our Emergency Fund, we’re working hard in Yemen to provide clean water and healthcare, and to keep children safe.

Our teams are distributing medical equipment and treatment for malnutrition. We’re supplying communities with water tanks, hygiene kits and money for food. And we’re running mobile child protection teams.

Since the fighting escalated, we’ve reached 775,000 people, including more than 443,000 children. But with 40% of the population aged under 15, children’s needs remain huge.

Fatima’s story

Five-year-old Fatima* and her family lost everything when conflict forced them to abandon their home in western Yemen.

When she developed a life-threatening bowel disease, Fatima’s father had no money to pay for the surgery his daughter urgently needed.

We put in an urgent call to a hospital in Sana’a and took Fatima there for emergency surgery. The operation saved her life.
