85000 children may have died from extreme hunger in Yemen

War has raged in Yemen for four years – and children are paying the heaviest price.

Bombs. Hunger. Disease. Children in Yemen face a daily – and deadly – triple attack.

Please donate to our Yemen Appeal

As bombs rain down on homes and schools, thousands of children have been killed and maimed.

With the economy in tatters, millions of children go to sleep hungry. Yemen may be on the brink of the worst famine in 100 years.

And with water supplies cut off or damaged by conflict, children face another deadly threat: cholera.

Thousands of Yemeni children are in danger of dying from the disease – and this is entirely preventable.
