After almost four years of war, the resulting displacement, hunger and disease have made Yemen the worst humanitarian crisis on earth. More than 22 million people, three quarters of the population, are in desperate need of assistance.
As well as the threat of violence, more than 1.1 million Yemenis have been infected with cholera – 2,300 of whom have died as a result. The World Health Organisation has called it “the worst cholera outbreak in the world.”
On top of these challenges, the lack of food sees Yemen on the brink of famine – forcing families to face the combined threats of conflict, cholera, and starvation.
