lives have been torn apart after two years of brutal armed conflict in Yemen.
Children like 1 year old Zuhoor* who had her fingers amputated after being
crushed by debris and badly burnt in an airstrike.
The Saudi-led coalition have been responsible for dozens of bombings. They must be held to account for their actions, along with all of Yemen’s warring parties. Don’t let them use their political influence to get themselves off the hook.
More must be done. Join with us by signing up for more updates on how you can help.

Dear Secretary General,
The war in Yemen is taking an appalling toll on the country’s children. Time
and again we have seen all sides act in violation of international law, leading
to thousands of children being killed and maimed in their homes, schools and
It is vital that the warring parties who have committed these terrible
abuses are held to account. Last year, the Saudi Arabia-led Coalition was added
to the list of perpetrators of grave violations in your annual Children
and Armed Conflict report, alongside the other groups fighting in Yemen. But
despite overwhelming UN-verified evidence of violations against children
by the Coalition in 2015, they were removed from the list.
This cannot happen again. We know that the Saudi Arabia-led Coalition was
responsible for the deaths or injuries of more than 120 children in 2016, and
attacked multiple schools and hospitals. Please ensure that all parties in this
devastating conflict are held accountable for their actions by listing them in
this year’s report.
If we don’t stand up and protect Yemen’s children, who will?
