Yemen suffers some of the highest rates of malnourishment in the world.

There is no famine in Yemen. There are no vultures looming over skeletal babies. No film cameras to record flies landing on hollowed faces. No pop concert to raise awareness.

Hunger in Yemen is not photogenic, but is rather the unfulfilled potential, lost dreams and gnawing pain passed from one generation to the next.

Yemeni children don’t grow up to be big and strong. A shocking 58 percent (just one percent behind the worst rate, Afghanistan) grow up stunted, physically and mentally less than their potential.
