Desperate Yemeni parents are increasingly marrying off their young girls for money

Desperate parents in Yemen are increasingly marrying off their young girls for cash

.Child marriages are increasing  dramatically in Yemen, fuelled by Saudi-led war that has thrown the country  into turmoil.

The Saudi-led attacks and intervention in Yemen’s internal affairs has caused calamities in this country.

Famine, as hard as Saudi bombs, is devastating the country. Lack of medication is claiming life on daily basis.

Children are dying. Over 400,000 girls under 18 have lost their homes, and many of them have been settled in refugee camps. Hundreds of thousands of teenagers cannot attend schools. Inter Alia, many families start to think about marrying their daughters off for cash even in very young ages because they cannot afford their children’s costs.
