More than 20 million people in Yemen – two thirds of the population – are now in need of humanitarian assistance, with malnutrition widespread and clean water scarce. The country has now also been hit by the fastest growing cholera epidemic ever recorded. Since April there have been almost a million suspected cases, with over 2,200 deaths. More than half of the suspected cases have been children.
Despite the ongoing conflict, DEC member charities have reached nearly 1.4 million people with essential aid; food, water and sanitation, cash assistance and food vouchers. 
Over £27 million has been raised to help save lives, including £5 million UK Aid Match funding from the Department of International Development.  But more needs to be done. Your support can help save lives. Please give now.
