The United Nations describes the Yemen crisis as “the worst famine the world has seen in 100 years” and warn that 14 million people are facing starvation in Yemen, and those worst hit are children.  85,000 Yemeni children under the age of 5 have starved to death in the last three years.

C1 Teenage Girls Club momentously raised £700 through the sale of items, that was donated to Penny Appeal, in response to the Yemen Emergency .  May ALLAH (One God) reward all the Girls, Parents and Teachers of the Club immensely for this noble of charitable deeds.

Hunger: 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.

Cholera: 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 in Yemen, 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.
