Coping with the horrors of the conflict in Yemen
12-year old Mohammed lives with his parents and two siblings in Hajjah city. He is in 4th grade. An airstrike hit a gas station right next to his home during the night and awakened the whole family. The strong sound of explosion scared the whole family but Mohammed was the most impacted.
Born into war - 1,000 days of lost childhood
More than 3 million children were born in Yemen since the escalation in violence in March 2015 according to a UNICEF report. Born into War details how children in Yemen have been scarred by years of violence, displacement, disease, poverty, undernutrition and a lack of access to basic services including water, health care and education.
The report calls on all parties to the conflict, those with influence on them and the global community to prioritise the protection of children in Yemen.
