Highlights:

· The conflict in Yemen continues to take a toll on children and families. At least 115 children have been killed between 26 March and 20 April, 2015. These numbers are believed to be conservative, as the total number of children is likely to be higher.

· UNICEF emergency health supplies have arrived in Sa’ada and have been distributed to several districts. These include emergency health kits and drugs that can meet the primary health care needs of 20,000 persons for 3 months, midwifery kits to support 500 deliveries, as well as resuscitation kits and several items for trauma management.

· UNICEF-provided fuel enabled the Sana’a Water Corporation to power pumps for one week, benefitting 169,000 people in Amanat Al Asima with access to clean water.
