Please help! UNICEF is in desperate for more money. With the wars raging in Syria, Iraq and Yemen,  there are now more refugees (over 5 million) in the Mideast than there were in Europe at the end of World War II. The Saudi have put parts of Yemen into siege. The people in those areas are being starved and the infrastructure has collapsed, Sanitation systems have failed, and hundreds of people are getting infected with cholera every day. UNICEF is there to help people affected by recent disasters such as the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia.
