In Yemen, the U.N. has called for a cease-fire in the conflict between Houthi rebels and a Saudi-led coalition backed by the U.S. No official death toll exists, but Save the Children says 85,000 children have died since the war began from a combination of violence, hunger and disease. Nick Schifrin talks to Greg Ramm, the charity’s vice president for humanitarian response, about what can be done.
