Why I chose to run for UNICEF Iceland? "Yemen risks becoming a forgotten crisis". The escalation of the conflict in Yemen has left an estimated 14.1 million people, including 7.4 million children, in need of access to health care. 1.5 million Children are malnourished, 370,000 them severely acutely malnourished. 19.3 million Yemenis do not have access to clean water and sanitation. And due to insecurity and closure of schools, 350,000 children were unable to resume their studies but education is a human right. Support UNICEF with the great projects in the country! Information on the different projects can also be found on the website: (www.unicef.org/yemen/). No child in the world deserves to live like that!
