Yemen, a war-torn country with a shattered health care system is now the epicenter for COVID-19 in the region
Yemen is experiencing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Tragically, at least one child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen from malnutrition and preventable diseases. 24 million people are in URGENT need of humanitarian assistance.
After a devastating SIX long years of brutal conflict, during which families were wiped out by famine, cholera, and war, Yemenis are now bracing for a winter that threatens to push them over the brink. Yemeni children are facing death, hunger and disease daily.
|Today, nearly 16 million people—more than half of the population of Yemen, do not know where their next meal is coming from. More than three million people have fled their homes, and more than 20 million people are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Since 2017, an estimated 1.3 million suspected cases of cholera, and 2,293 deaths have been reported from this disease as a direct result of conflict. This is the one of the worst cholera outbreaks in recent history.
