Twenty months of war are having severe consequences on the children of Yemen. More than 7 million people in Yemen do not know where their next meal will come from and children are dying from malnutrition.
During war, it is the children who face the greatest risk of starvation. Almost half a million infants and young children need immediate treatment for malnutrition. Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) members are already providing treatment for malnutrition and running mobile health teams and hospitals but they need funds to reach more children.
Will you donate today to help the DEC reach millions of people with lifesaving aid?
Our work with the DEC
While we do not work in Yemen, we are a member of the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) which brings 13 leading UK aid charities together in times of crisis. Your generous donations to help children in Yemen will go straight to the DEC who, through the charities they work with, is on the ground providing assistance where it is needed most.
DEC members have been working in Yemen for decades and will continue to work with the poorest people to rebuild lives and restore incomes destroyed by the war for years to come. The DEC face daily challenges to reach those in most need but they are already providing lifesaving aid around the clock.
By working as part of a member organisation during emergencies, we work more effectively to use expertise and raise more funds to help those who need it most. We have been a member of the DEC for over five years. Together, we have transformed the lives of children who lost their schools and homes to the Nepal Earthquake and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and whose lives were ripped apart by the Ebola crisis.
