Famine in Yemen


Millions of children are caught up in a horrifying crisis

Two years of brutal war have pushed Yemen to the brink of famine.

Ports and airports are in ruins, leading to shortages of food, medicines and vital supplies.

In areas affected by fighting, children are being killed and maimed by airstrikes and explosive weapons. Hospitals are being bombed and many health services have completely collapsed.

More than two million children are malnourished and thousands have died from preventable illnesses. Deadly cholera is now putting children's lives at risk, too.
