Every ten minutes, one Yemeni child dies from preventable causes like diarrhea, malnutrition, and respiratory tract infection. 

Yemen’s children are at the heart of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Ten million children are in urgent need of assistance, over two million are malnourished — and the number is rising.
