Yemen has been facing what many have called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
The Middle East country, located at the end of the Arabian Peninsula, has a population of over 28 million and 22 million of them need humanitarian assistance (16 million do not have enough food).
Much of the famine is a result of the civil war that began years ago.
Many of the Christians (Roman Catholics and Anglicans) are refugees or temporary foreign residents.
“They face persecution from the authorities (including detention and interrogation), their families and radical Islamic groups who threaten converts with death if they do not re-convert.”
– Open Doors USA, a persecution watchdog group
