Dubbed the worst humanitarian crisis by the United Nations and others, the Yemen crisis has left over 80% of the country’s population in need of humanitarian assistance.
Ever since the beginning of the civil war in 2011, the country’s population has suffered due to conflict, violence, poor hygiene conditions, lack of food, and more.
Due to the lack of safe sanitation and medical care, the cholera disease has spread quickly amongst Yemenis. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the situation, putting more stress on the need for healthcare assistance. The lack of water and food has led to malnutrition and famine. More than 2 million children under the age of 5 suffer as a consequence of this.
You can help alleviate the suffering happening in Yemen by donating to the Canadian Red Cross, who is working hard to get life-saving assistance to Yemenis in need.
