About Us

"Save the Children" is a leading international non-governmental organization (NGO) that promotes children's rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries. Founded in the UK in 1919, it works in many countries around the world to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.

In Yemen, Save the Children has been active in providing various forms of aid, due to the ongoing conflict that started in 2015. The Yemen conflict has been described as one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. The work of Save the Children in Yemen typically involves:

  1. Food Assistance: Yemen is facing a severe food crisis, with millions of people at risk of starvation. Save the Children provides food assistance to the most vulnerable communities.
  2. Healthcare: They provide life-saving healthcare services to children and their families. This includes treating malnourished children, supporting healthcare facilities with supplies and equipment, and training health workers.
  3. Education: Save the Children is also working to ensure that children in Yemen can continue their education, even in the midst of conflict. This can involve providing learning materials, rehabilitating schools, and supporting teachers.
  4. Protection: The organization works to protect children from the dangers of conflict. This can involve providing psychosocial support to children traumatized by the conflict, and supporting programs that help to protect children from abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
  5. Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH): They also help to provide clean water, sanitation facilities, and hygiene education to prevent the spread of diseases.
  6. Emergency response: In the wake of any escalating conflict or natural disaster, Save the Children is often one of the first on the ground to provide immediate, life-saving assistance.
