As the war in Yemen enters its sixth year, the United Nations has warned that 80% of the population requires humanitarian aid as the country is torn apart by civil war. Termed by the UN as the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world, the country has become a battleground and a nightmare for civilians - with children being the most affected amongst them.
More than 350,000 children are suffering from malnutrition and other preventable but deadly diseases. Moreover, hospitals and schools that have been damaged have been closed down, disrupting the country's access to sound medical access and education. Yemen has been damaged from all fronts and the future of the children is severely at risk.
A total of 3 million people have been displaced due to the ongoing war, with casualties estimated to number many tens of thousands. This conflict has created an international refugee crisis, with many crossing the border in order to flee the war and save their lives. The world largely sits silently as gross human rights violations run rampant within the country.
