Children in Yemen Are Dying by the Hundreds
Children in Yemen Stricken with Cholera And Weak with Hunger Are Dying by the Hundreds – And It's Getting Worse
Clean water, food and medicine: all are in shockingly short supply. And now, the Saudi government is blocking supplies from entering the country.
As I write this, we know that at least 1,200 tons of food and medical supplies are delayed from Djibouti. Aid ships in the port of Hodeida have not been allowed to off-load, and at least three UN Humanitarian Air Assistance flights have been delayed.
This blockade will end, and when it does, the need for humanitarian relief will be greater than ever. Please, make sure CARE can meet the need in Yemen and fulfill our commitments to vulnerable communities throughout the world. Make an urgent gift today.
Before this blockade, CARE staff were already on the ground in Yemen, providing food, water, hygiene kits and other desperately needed aid. Women and children are hit especially hard when lingering crises suddenly worsen, and it's our steadfast commitment – as always – to make sure aid gets to the people who need it most, as quickly as it possibly can.
But responding to urgent threats like this strains our resources, so that's why I'm asking you to step up with an urgent gift today. For all the people who rely on CARE's lifesaving work, thank you for providing a lifeline to them each and every time you give.
