Due to the war, collapse of their government, and blockade on delivery of food or medicine into their country, the small Republic of Yemen is helpless to respond to the critical crisis of its people. Unicef has reported that 1.8 million Yemeni children under the age of five suffer from acute malnutrition, and the lives of 400,000 severely affected children are under threat. In a recent report by Save the Children an estimated 85,000 children under the age of five have died from starvation.
The ONLY way to reach the children in war zones quickly is by donating to a charity located inside their country. Since March 2015, the caring people at Mona Relief Yemen have been defending children against the suffering inflicted on them by war. Mona volunteers are delivering lifesaving packages to the most vulnerable, and bringing smiles to little ones’ faces.
