As conflict rages in Yemen, the country is also facing both the world’s largest food security crisis and its most severe cholera epidemic. Children are suffering disproportionately from this triple crisis: forced from their homes with limited access to food, basic healthcare or clean water, 1.8 million children face acute malnutrition, and they make up a significant proportion of the country’s 396,086 suspected cholera cases. Children have also been torn from their schools and forced to live in makeshift camps, headed for a future marked by fear and uncertainty. Getty photographer Giles Clarke spent weeks in Yemen documenting the impact of the triple crisis on children’s lives.
