Special Stand for Peace in 2018 to Stop the Saudi War in Yemen

​“Yemen is the World’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis”

  • As a result, nearly 18 million Yemenis – or 2 out of every 3 people – don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
  • Over 85,000 children might have died of hunger since the bombings began in 2015.
  • “For every child killed by bombs and bullets, dozens are starving to death — and it’s entirely preventable.”
  •  The overall economic collapse, exacerbated by limited function of airports and seaports, has pushed the prices of basic goods out of reach for most, worsening hunger and inequality.
  • More than 100,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in Yemen in the last few years, according to a new assessment, a figure six times higher than previous estimates.
  • There have been more than 1.1 million cases of cholera
  • 22.2 million people in Yemen need some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance.
  • Estimated over 18 million Yemenis are food insecure-8.4 million people are severely food insecure and at risk of starvation.
