The poorest country in the Middle East is devastated by war, hunger and a cholera crisis. Now heavy fighting has broken out in Hodeida—one of the main ports of entry for humanitarian supplies—displacing families and cutting off access to clean water.
Conflict and a lack of aid has triggered a humanitarian disaster, leaving 70 percent of the population in need of assistance and children facing acute malnutrition. Hunger is on the rise, and basic services like education, water, health and sanitation have deteriorated.
These conditions have triggered an unprecedented cholera outbreak in Yemen. As of February 2018, more than 1 million cholera cases were reported, and 9.6 million children are at risk.
When you donate to Yemen relief, CRS will assist with the humanitarian response in Yemen. In Hodeida, where fighting is heaviest, CRS local partners are providing critical food and living supplies to families.
Your gifts will provide medication and treatment, improvements to hygiene and sanitation, and lifesaving nutrition for children.
