Families in Yemen caught amid the crossfire of conflict are suffering at increasingly dire levels in what the UN describes as one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.
Estimates indicate a staggering 20.7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance with 11.3 million of those being children. Others estimate these figures could even be as high as 24.3 million and 14.4 million respectively.
Famine is widespread. 2.3 million children are acutely malnourished and 400,000 are severely malnourished.
The Zahra Trust has been working to address multidimensional poverty in Yemen through various emergency and long-term sustainable programmes including essential needs such as medical aid, clean drinking water, shelter and seasonal aid.
