We're supporting 1000 children for the nutritional needs
Conflict, drought and unrest in four countries - Yemen, Afghanistan, Somalia and Liberia - have forced one and a half million girls and boys into the red zone in alarming rates. This means that they are suffering from dire hunger and urgently need our help.
Children are being hit the hardest. A combination of water scarcity, conflict, climate change, population displacement and the deliberate destruction of much-needed infrastructure are all contributing to this malnutrition crisis. In Yemen, a child dies every 10 minutes from preventable causes like malnutrition. In Liberia, a staggering 1 in 3 children is malnourished.
These are dire statistics but it doesn’t have to be this way. There is hope for children in Yemen, Somalia, Liberia and Afghanistan. There is something powerful you can do: donate to help UNICEF teams deliver life-saving treatment for malnutrition.
Your emergency donation can give children:
- Micro-nutrient powder, when added to food gives children a boost of important vitamins and minerals
- Therapeutic milk, a life-saving alternative when mother's are unable to product breast milk
- Life-saving 'peanut butter', specially formulated with nutrients children need to survive and grow
We're focused on simple, cost-effective solutions. Just 53c buys one sachet of life-saving food.
An incredible 92% of children make a full recovery when they're reached with proper nutritional treatment.
80% of the world's life-saving food is provided by UNICEF - more than any other organisation.
So far, UNICEF has helped 346,000 children in Yemen and aims to treat another 360,000 children suffering from severe malnutrition in Yemen alone.
