Highlights

  • As the conflict in Yemen enters its third year, children and their families are struggling to survive. Without access to basic services, every ten minutes a child dies of preventable causes and many more are dying from conflict related causes.

  • Two years since the escalation of the conflict, Yemen is witnessing the highest numbers of malnourished children. Nearly 2.2 million children severely and acutely malnourished are now 11 times more at risk of death as compared to their healthy peers.
