Campaigning in Yemen

Summary

Yemen

We're campaigning for children affected by conflict with a focus on girls. The conflict in Yemen is devastating the lives of 9.9 million children who are now in need of humanitarian assistance. Thousands of children have been forced to flee their homes and communities and many have lost their access to basic services including healthcare and education.
