Yemen is going through the most acute humanitarian crisis on the globe, facing a tragic ongoing brutal conflict, another devastating cholera outbreak and a severe shortage of food and water. In 2019 Yemen, Cholera is hitting hard again, where nearly 110,000 suspected cases have been reported since January including 190 related deaths. The UN office for humanitarian affairs (OCHA) said children under the age of five make up nearly a third of the cases, which were reported between January 1 and March 17.
The cholera spike comes two years after Yemen suffered the epidemic’s worst outbreak in its modern history, claiming the lives of thousands of children, pregnant women, and vulnerable people. The resurgence of the waterborne disease is being caused by poor maintenance of sewage disposal systems, the use of contaminated water for irrigation and the constant movement of the IDP’s population. The spread of Cholera has been exacerbated by the collapse of Yemen’s health system, in a country where 17.8 million people lack access to safe water and sanitation services.
Marking its fourth anniversary, the conflict has wreaked havoc in Yemen, leaving more than three (3) million people displaced with little to no access to food, water or healthcare. The collapse of the healthcare system has taken an enormous toll on the population in Yemen. Every ten minutes, a child, under five in Yemen dies of preventable causes. The UN has declared the last three years of the Yemeni crisis as a system-wide level 3 humanitarian emergency, which is defined as the most challenging and humanitarian emergency.
According to the UN, more than 20 million Yemenis are food insecure; half of them on the verge of starvation and do not know when their next meal will be or where it will come from, and if no prompt actions are taken, Yemen may face the worst famine the world has seen in decades.
The aftermath of the conflict has severely damaged educational facilities like schools and training centers, while the massive displacement has forced hundreds of thousands of children to leave schools and pushed them to join the labor market.
