Yemen is facing the world’s worst cholera outbreak. Years of conflict have crippled the vital health, water and sanitation facilities in the country. Over 600,000 cases of suspected cholera and nearly 2,047 associated deaths have been recorded.
This cholera outbreak couldn't have come at a worse time for the children of Yemen.
The country is already on the brink of famine. Nearly 2 million children are acutely malnourished and are at imminent risk of death.
UNICEF, along with its partners, is working round-the clock to save children from this unprecedented spread of cholera. But we need your support and we need it urgently.
- We’re supporting more than 1,000 diarrhoea treatment centres and oral rehydration locations.
- We’re providing critical life-saving supplies sachets of oral rehydration solution and tons of food items for children with malnutrition.
- We’re also helping to repair water networks to provide safe water to over 4 million people.
- Moreover, UNICEF along with our partners, is paying incentives, travel costs, or other allowances to health and sanitation workers who have not received their salaries for more than ten months, so that they can continue to function through this period.
The time is running out for children in Yemen. Thousands are falling sick every day. Please donate now to save a life.
