"Cholera does not need a permit to cross a checkpoint or a border...," warned Geert Cappelaere, Unicef's regional director for the Middle East and North Africa. Cholera cases in Yemen could quadruple in the next month to 300,000. He adds, the situation is "incredibly dire." The crisis is entirely man-made. Two years of civil war has left 7 million people on the brink of famine. The conflict between Houthi militants and the military alliance of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia has devastated the country. The infrastructure is destroyed and normal life has ceased to exist.
 
Unicef, known as the United Nations Children's Fund has stepped in by providing clean water to one million people, rehydration kits, and medicine to help fight the epidemic. An estimated 18.8 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. Neither side is willing to halt the conflict to allow for humanitarian aid. UN humanitarian chief, Stephen O'Brien told the UN Security Council, "Urgent action is required to stem the suffering. Crisis is not coming, it is not looming, it is here today - on our watch." Meanwhile the epidemic runs rampant, and the innocent die.

The nation of Yemen is number 9 on the 2017 Open Doors World Watch List of the worst persecutors of Christians in the world. Window International Network partners pray for Yemen on Day 18 in accordance with the Praying Through the Window 9: Global Terrorism and World Religions prayer calendar.

Please pray for:
  • The combatants to respond favorably to pleas for them to stop their conflict and allow humanitarian aid to get to the needy in time to halt the spreading epidemic (The Bible, Romans 12:20).
  • God's divine intervention and protection over hospitals trying to treat and save lives of cholera and war victims (The Bible, Daniel 6:19-21).
  • God to bless and miraculously multiply food supplies to enable the starving to endure and survive the atrocious war (The Bible, 1 Kings 17:7-16).
