Assault on Hodeidah
Yemen’s children are already some of the hardest hit by a conflict which has been raging in the country for over three years.
In recent weeks, violence has erupted on the outskirts of the city of Hodeidah which is home to Yemen’s largest port.
The impact of an attack on the city and its port would be catastrophic for Yemen’s children, who have already suffered so much.
Children and their families are in grave danger of being trapped in the conflict zone and caught in the crossfire. 80% of Yemen’s food, fuel and medicine is imported through the port. Any closure would sever a vital supply line for millions of people.
