Three years of war and its following inflation have challenged lives of Yemeni people. At least three million people have been born in the country since the beginning of Saudi-led invasion with 30 per cent of them born premature and a number of 1.5 million suffering malnutrition.
According to a UNICEF report, over 11 million babies, almost all Yemeni kids, are in urgent need of humanitarian aids.
Freezing weather has added to the problem for a great number of those who have lost their homes in the war and live in poor conditions in shelters.
