There are many issues in the world right now, but none are more urgent than in Yemen where one child is dying in every 10 minutes due to lack of food, water and medicine.
Sadly, with COVID-19 breaking out across the country, Yemen is facing the biggest emergency in its history. Food prices have doubled in the past month alone. Yemen is on the verge of going extinct and the world has left Yemen to die.

50% of our profit to be donated to savethechildren.org
With the small community we have grown together at The Bath Theory, we would like to participate and contribute as much as we could in helping them with this crisis.
On one hand, more people will be able to try our sustainable and cruelty-free skin care, and hopefully be more inspired about sustainable living. On the other hand, they are also contributing to our fellow brothers and sisters that are suffering in Yemen. You can shop our sustainable skin care products here! All orders will come with an A6 info-graphic card with information regarding the Yemen Crisis.

What’s happening in Yemen?
“Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world , with more than 24 million people (around 80% of the population) in need of humanitarian assistance. This includes more than 12 million children. Since the Yemeni civil war in March 2015, the country’s has become a living hell for the country’s children.
With COVID-19 now spreading rapidly , Yemen is facing an emergency within an emergency. Sanitation and clean water are in short supply. Only half of health facilities are functioning , and many that remain operational lack basic equipment like masks and gloves, let alone oxygen and other essentials supplies to treat COVID-19. Many health workers are receiving no salaries or incentives. ” – UNICEF
