Your support will help save lives in Yemen
“We urgently need to get high-nutrient foods to the most vulnerable children in Yemen, some of whom are truly on the brink. Just under $90 can feed a family of seven for a whole month. One child dying from starvation is one child too many.” Tamer Kirolos, Save the Children’s Country Director in Yemen.

Treat children already suffering from severe malnutrition and provide urgently needed food to stop others becoming dangerously malnourished.
Run treatment centres and isolation units to treat children suffering from cholera and diphtheria and help stop these deadly diseases spreading.
Support 167 fixed health facilities and 23 hospitals to provide families with essential healthcare in a country where the health system is at breaking point.
Provide psychosocial support to children to help them cope with what they are going through and set up spaces where children can feel safe to learn, play and begin to recover.
Children like Nusair* (pictured), was treated for malnutrition in a Save the Children supported clinic. After his treatment ended, conflict forced his family to flee their neighbourhood. When a Save the Children follow-up team found Nusair, he was malnourished once again. We referred him back to the hospital, and provided transportation and food to help Nusair’s mother, Suad, take care of her family.
