Here is the introduction to the article, and for those of you interested in the Yemeni civil war, you will be able to read the entire article at the link posted above. Personally I had stopped following events in the ME and suddenly I realized that things keep continuing or keep changing so quickly in so few years.. I hope the Trump administration will be willing to move things in a positive direction somehow..

Children in Yemen are teetering between life and death, as 2.2 million suffer from acute malnutrition, while those killed by hostilities jumped 70 percent last year, UNICEF warned on the second anniversary of the war in the Middle East’s poorest country.
Two years into the Yemeni conflict, children continue to suffer the consequences and will soon succumb to starvation without prompt humanitarian assistance and viable efforts to bring peace to the war-ravaged country, UNICEF said in a report entitled ‘Falling through the Cracks.’

Nearly half a million children suffer from severe acute malnutrition, which is manifest in grotesquely slim bodies and stunted growth – a 200-percent increase since 2014, the report warned. The fighting and devastation has forced Yemenis into buying cheaper food or skipping meals, while around 80 percent of families are in debt or borrowing money just to feed their children.

UNIECF, which is now spearheading relief efforts in Yemen, said nearly 2.2 million children are currently acutely malnourished and require urgent care. Children suffering from severe acute malnutrition are ten times more likely to die than their healthy peers because their weakened immune systems leave them vulnerable to diseases. Consequently, UNICEF has classified them as having a life-threatening condition.

It's sad but the majority of the world doesn't care. There is also the fact that most countries have to deal with there own problems right now. I'm already pissed that Merkel hands out our money like it's free candy. Greek and the refugee crisis for example. I'm all for helping them but not if my fellow germans have to pay the price for our governments incompetence. Let Obama and Hillary foot the bill. They are the ones who bombed countless countries.

Its not a 'civil war' its not even a 'Yemeni conflict', its war waged on Yemen by the Sauds spearheading the "Coalition" (read that western interests), waging aggressive war under false pretenses for the same damn reason everywhere else it is being waged in the Middle East, by NATO for control of people and resources.

The siege they have laid is having its desired effect, everyone there is starving and bleeding to death. Despite the expected cries of injustice form the slavish UN and other organizations, it will continue and it will get worse, not better.

Its okay though, a little while longer and they'll all be dead and everyone will forget, again, about the tragedy there and everywhere in the region.

fun fact - if you make more than 32,000 a year you are a 1 percenter of the world.

i was recently inspired listening to a podcast featuring mma fighter justin wren. he donates his time helping to teach the pygmies how to drill wells in africa. the world need more people like him, i truly admire what he is doing.

if our tax dollars were spent efficiently we would have more than enough to help others. unfortunately i can't trust any government entity to disperse my tax money wisely. i donate to united way which helps locally, as far as globally, i wonder how i can donate and know that my donation is going where it needs to go.

Saudis + American blockade. Russia can't help because they are not close within the borders of Russia unlike Syria.

I have to say I am a little ashamed of the responses on ATS. Children are children and they deserve help whoever they are and wherever they are. Yes, Houthi's started it which gave Saudi an excuse to go in and we helped. Where is our and everyone else's humanity?

1) donate to local organizations that have "boots on the ground" and are actually making a difference as opposed to BS "charity groups" that only campaign or advocate, like Bono's (from U2) scumbag "One Foundation" that was caught putting only just over 1% of profits to charity.

A lot of the bigger "charity organizations" are easy tax breaks and slushfunds where the donations aren't put towards what they claim.

or 2) do something on your own that will actually make a tangible difference as opposed to donating to other organizations and just hoping they do the right thing with it

Well I hope the EU is ready for the next mass migration from the south, I guess the goal is to drain the entire middle east with the exemption of the wealthy states that have no problem dumping the rest of their peers on other countries so they can change the face of those nations to be more like them.

EU is being stupid. US gets involved, takes over resources possibly and EU takes all the people that US don't want that were probably relocated them by US.

Because it never helps Out to rebuild a country after bombing it. they never learn if you fix things back for them. And also Screw them. it was their fault for drawing attention to their country. the US has enough problems to solve at home instead of over seas where they would never appreciate any help given.

Those children will grow up to be haters so better to not help them really. if they are destined to live they will.
