Yemen Crisis: 24 million people are in need of humanitarian aid
With the ongoing conflict in Yemen – already one of the poorest countries in the region – tens of thousands of lives have been lost and over 20 million people don’t know where their next meal will come from. A country crippled by conflict is sadly now on the brink of famine.
With families facing ongoing armed conflict, displacement, disease and economic decline, an estimated 24 million people (80% of the country’s population) are now in need of humanitarian aid to survive – a figure so high that it is in fact the highest across the globe.
Islamic Relief is currently on the ground in 17 of the country’s 22 governorates, delivering aid to many hard-to-reach areas.
Through their emergency appeal, they're working to save lives across Yemen, which now officially hosts the world's largest human-induced security crisis. Islamic Relief is distributing food to some of the most hard-to-reach areas of the country and are providing food to more than 2.5 million people. They have also provided 21 hospitals and clinics across the country with the right equipment to support doctors and nurses working to treat wounded, ill and malnourished people. A portion of their work also involves supporting children through child protection and psycho-social support activities.
