Forgotten Crisis, Forgotten Children: Millions Of Yemen's Children Going Hungry

As the conflict in Yemen enters its ninth month, the situation for children and their families becomes more and more desperate with each passing day. Over 1.3 million children under the age of five are suffering from acute malnutrition, and with the food security situation deteriorating further, their families are powerless to help them. It is more urgent than ever that all parties participating in renewed peace talks agree to end the conflict, lift restrictions on humanitarian access and further ease restrictions on imports.

This media briefing provides some of the key facts and figures relating to the situation of children in Yemen. Case studies are provided as well as a look at how Save the Children is responding and the recommendations Save the Children has made to the international community and to the parties involved.
