Yemen & beyond: From US Committee for UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund)

I hope this UNICEF national committee is successful in raising its important goal of $50,000 for emergency response to protect children of Yemen and other locations around the world. As Lisa says, "they all need our help now."  Pets, strays, farm animals and wildlife must also be suffering very seriously from insane violence in parallel ways. I worked for UNICEF several years and can relate to issues critical to women, children and non-human animals alike. They all need our help if we can provide it for them. Please consider this UNICEF appeal and donate and/or share if you are able.

Liz, the violence in Yemen is getting worse by the hour.
Hundreds of Americans have been evacuated to escape the danger — but Yemen's children, like those living in Syria, Iraq and many other conflict zones, don't have that option. And they all need our help now.

Protect children in Yemen
Gunfire and bombings have killed scores of children. Thousands more are trapped without clean water or food. Equally tragic, armed groups are forcing children to serve as soldiers. In Iraq and Syria, children as young as 12 are being trained to man checkpoints and guard locations; some have even been used as suicide bombers.
Your support will help us deploy the critical staff and supplies needed to protect these children and others around the world from violence. Every donation means that we can provide vital care and shelter to more children fleeing violence in places like Yemen, Syria and Iraq.
Please, Liz, help us raise $50,000 in the next few hours to help these children:
We have to act now,
