The people in Yemen are silently starving
The people in Yemen need our help to overcome thirst and starvation. Yemen is a poverty-stricken country on the Arabian Peninsula that is being ravaged by war. Since the war in Yemen broke out in early 2015, thousands of people have died and millions are facing shortages of food, water, and vital supplies. More than half of the people of Yemen struggle to find enough to eat. Our goal is to distribute food and water to help people in this war-torn country.
The crisis began in early 2015 when a rebel group, known as the Houthis, seized control of part of the country and forced Yemen’s president to flee abroad.

Since then, war has raged between the two sides. Constant airstrikes have left Yemen’s roads nearly impassable. Partial blockades of Yemen’s ports delay delivery of life-saving medicine. It is not uncommon for sick people to die en route to the hospital due to rough roads and blockades.
There are no official reports confirming how many people have died. The United Nations stopped updating the number of casualties more than two years ago, after 10,000 civilians had died. That number did not even include those who had died of disease and malnutrition.
