Yemen Crisis

The United Nations describes the Yemen crisis as “the worst famine the world has seen in 100 years”.


Due to years of ongoing war, at least 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict and millions more are displaced and facing starvation. 85,000 children under the age of 5 have died of starvation in the last 3 years. 
With a severe lack of medical provisions and food, parents are facing the horrifying decision of which child to feed.


The people of Yemen have also been battling a deadly outbreak of cholera since 2016. There have been over 600,000 confirmed deaths due to cholera, but the suspected number is much higher. 

Cholera is a highly contagious bacterial infection spread through contaminated food or water - and with 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. 

Civil War

This humanitarian catastrophe extends beyond 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.

With all this alongside continued attacks, outbreaks of cholera and severe malnutrition, the people of Yemen are in urgent need of healthcare and medicine.

Our Response

Since 2014, Penny Appeal have delivered aid to over 43,000 people affected by famine and conflict in Yemen.

We are on the ground right now with our Yemen Appeal, providing emergency food packs and community feeding provisions, as well as cholera treatment and medical supplies which treat illness and severe malnutrition. 

Our teams are also supporting medical centres in the area, providing medical care and relief to the over-burdened hospitals, who lack the trained staff and supplies to treat the influx of wounded and sick people. 

This aid is vital, saving the lives of thousands of displaced peoples, who through no fault of their own have become casualties of a war they did not start.

We’re doing everything we can with our Yemen Appeal, but there are still so many people who need our help. 

We cannot stand back and watch as the worst famine this century is unfolding before our eyes. 

Join us as we help in their hour of need. 

Donate now; just £50 could feed a malnourished family for a whole month.
