Is there anything we can do to actually help Yemen that makes a difference?

I know it sounds reformist and liberal, but I guess putting pressure on your elected representatives in your country (if it supports the Saudis) would be one way. Donating to charities working in Yemen would be another: https://www.savethechildren.org/us/what-we-do/where-we-work/ greater-middle-east-eurasia/yemen

Other than that, I really don't know. It is one of those situations that makes me sad, angry and absolutely helpless, much like the Gaza/West Bank situation. I bet that the electorate of any country that is allied with the Saudis, if asked in a referendum, would vote to stop supporting them, but our countries' leaders, politicians, governments, aren't representatives of the people and do not come from the people.
