The humanitarian crisis in Yemen remains the worst in the world according to the UN. 

Over six years of conflict and severe economic decline are driving the country to the brink of famine, exacerbating needs in all areas. 

An estimated 20.7 million people – Two thirds of the population, including 11.3 million children - require some form of humanitarian or protection assistance.

An estimated 7.4 million people are in need of nutrition assistance. Of this total, there are 3.2 million who require treatment for acute malnutrition. 2.3 million children under 5 are expected to go hungry this year, including 400,000 children who are expected to die from severe acute malnutrition.

Children often pay the highest price in this war. One child dies every ten minutes in Yemen because of preventable diseases such as diarrhea, malnutrition and respiratory tract infections. 15.4 million people lack clean water and sanitation, including an estimated 8.4 million children who do not have access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene.

More than 2 million children are out of school, depriving them of an education and exposing them to protection risks.
