3 Million Children Born into War in Yemen
Local Editor

More than 3 million children were born in Yemen since the escalation in violence in March 2015 according to a UNICEF report.

Yemen

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.

"An entire generation of children in Yemen is growing up knowing nothing but violence. Children in Yemen are suffering the devastating consequences of a war that is not of their making," said Meritxell Relano, UNICEF Representative in Yemen.

"Malnutrition and disease are rampant as basic services collapse. Those who survive are likely to carry the physical and psychological scars of conflict for the rest of their lives."

According to the report, more than 5,000 children have lost their lives or injured in the violence - an average of five children every day since March 2015. More than 11 million children now need humanitarian assistance and an estimated 1.8 million children are acutely malnourished.

Since the conflict escalated in March 2015, nearly 2 million children are out of school, including almost half a million who dropped out. Also, health workers and teachers have been only partially paid for over a year, affecting education for 4.5 million children.

At the end of September 2017, 256 schools were reported totally destroyed, 150 schools were occupied by displaced people, and 23 by armed groups.
