One of the missions of FabOverFifty is to bring you reliable and exclusive information about crucial health issues, such as the One-Day Medical School presentations from five super smart, Yale Medical School doctors about our hearts, bladders, bones, breasts and hormones. But while we’re blessed with the ability and resources to take care of ourselves as women in the United States, millions of people around the globe aren’t so fortunate.

There is nothing more unnerving than seeing children who are starving and dying in war-torn Yemen, where growing poverty is causing the world’s worst humanitarian emergency. Approximately 85,000 children under 5 years old have died in Yemen from severe hunger since the start of civil war in 2015, according to the charity Save the Children.  On the ground in 120 countries, the organization works “to reach every last child through international programs that focus on health, education, protection and disaster relief.”

Save the Children has treated close to 100,000 children suffering from malnutrition, has given close to 300,000 children vital nourishment,  and is operating mobile health clinics in difficult-to-reach areas, thanks to donations from around the world. But over 11 million children in Yemen need help, which makes contributions more vital than ever.

With this horrific situation in mind, FabOverFifty will donate to Save the Children one-third of the revenue from the on-demand streaming of One-Day Medical School.  That means we’ll give Save the Children $5 each time we receive $14.99 from a woman who wants to benefit from the health lessons of five exceptional doctors. And we’ll donate the $5 in your behalf!

Please join us to help the children of Yemen. They may be thousands of miles away, but we must hold them close to our hearts.

And help the children of Yemen
