One year since the conflict in Yemen escalated, 90% of children are now in need of emergency humanitarian aid and the desperate plight of 10 million children is still being largely ignored, Save the Children said today.
Ten months on since the escalation in this pointless, protracted and bloody conflict has left the Middle East’s already poorest and most under-developed country now witnessing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis with 21.2 million people – or 82% of the population - now in need of emergency humanitarian assistance, including close to 10 million children.
The scale of suffering in Yemen is staggering.
