Crisis in Yemen
More than 7 million people in Yemen do not know where their next meal will come from and children face the greatest risk of starvation.
Twenty months of war have brought Yemen, already one of the poorest countries in the world, to breaking point.
People have lost their jobs and the economy has almost collapsed, people can no longer afford the essential supplies they need.
Hospitals, schools and farms have been destroyed.
Despite efforts to end the conflict, lives are being lost and aid is needed urgently.
According to the UN, at least 10,000 children under five have died from preventable diseases (such as diarrhoea and pneumonia) since the start of the war (as of June 2016.)
Christian Aid Ireland will be supporting the work of our partner agencies in the region who are best placed to respond to this emergency situation.
