"We had nothing"

We came here with empty hands, we did not have clothes or mattresses, we had nothing.” Amina (7) and her sister Aisha (4) fled their home and airstrikes two years ago. They now live with their mother in an abandoned house in Al-Zuhra District in western parts of Yemen.

Yemen was already poor when the war started. Now, starvation is killing more people, especially children, than the bombs. Yemen is becoming the worst food crisis in the world with more than 17 million people do not have enough to eat.

You can help with food, water and shelter to save lives in Yemen.
