Six year old Soria

Why we need your help

Soria is just six years old – too young to understand why her family had to flee their home.

“I managed to bring along one of my toys. But I don’t know what happened to my other toys,” she said. 

In Yemen, cities have become battlefields. Dead bodies lie in the streets. The situation is desperate.

Soria and her family are among 2.2 million people who have been forced to abandon their homes amidst sniper fire and indiscriminate shelling.

More than half the population do not have enough food. Almost a quarter face starvation. 

Families like Soria’s are struggling to survive without clean water. This puts them at risk of life-threatening diseases like cholera and typhoid.

We need your help to bring vital aid to people like Soria who are in desperate need. Please donate now.
