Assault on Hudaydah Port
Wednesday morning, Hudaydah Port,
As existing supplies run low, leaving 8 million poor souls, including women and children, at risk of starvation, there is a crisis in Yemen.
Over 600,000 people live in the port city alone, many of whom will be forced to flee their homes or risk being caught in the crossfire of deadly airstrikes and assaults.
Ravaged by disease, hunger, and now a war that seeks to strike at their only existing hope for relief, the people of Yemen need our help!

Yemen's Cholera Outbreak
Save the lives of those affected by the world's worst cholera outbreak
According to the UN, Yemen is facing the world's worst cholera outbreak in recent years. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimated as many as 300,000 people have been infected since August 2017 and over 1,300 people have already died since the onset of the epidemic.

Yemen and Cholera
Since 2014, Penny Appeal
Children are dying from malnutrition due to food and water shortages, and with a severe lack of medical provisions, parent's are facing the horrifying decision of which child to feed. The youngest are being hit the hardest; there are claims that a child under the age of five is dying every five minutes.
With the rapidly increasing outbreak of Cholera - a highly contagious bacterial infection spread through contaminated food or water - and a lack of clean water supplies, thousands of more cases can be expected. Affecting both adults and children, it can kill within hours if untreated.
The need for medical treatment is overwhelming; Cholera medicines are available locally, but the Ministry of Health (MOH) doesn't have the resources to purchase these from private companies, so are unable to make them widely available or free of cost for those in need.
This humanitarian catastrophe extends beyond just food and illness; the internal conflict has led to a freeze of salaries, soaring of fuel prices, and doctors who can't afford to go to the hospital to treat the citizens.
These people cannot wait any longer - they need your support, right now.
According to the UN, £1.7 billion is needed to prevent the famine in Yemen.
