A savage war has been raging across Yemen for more than two years; much of the country’s infrastructure has been destroyed; and almost 15 million people do not have access to basic healthcare. The country is now gripped by the worst cholera epidemic ever recorded. More than 2,000 people have died since late April from the highly contagious bacterial infection, which can kill within hours if left untreated. There are more than half a million suspected cases of cholera in Yemen and on average 5,000 new cases are recorded a day.

A savage war has been raging across Yemen for more than two years; much of the country’s infrastructure has been destroyed; and almost 15 million people do not have access to basic healthcare. A massive outbreak of the deadly disease, cholera, has swept across the country. It’s the largest and fastest epidemic of its kind ever to be documented in the world since record keeping began in 1949. More than 2,000 people have died since late April from the highly contagious bacterial infection, which can kill within hours if left untreated.
