The on-going conflict in Yemen is devastating lives. According to UNHCR, there are now over 1,439,100 internally displaced people. This is triple the previous record number of 545,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) recorded in 2012.
It’s estimated that 21.2 million people – a staggering 82% of Yemen’s population- require some kind of humanitarian assistance. Some 14.4 million people are food insecure, 19.3 million people lack adequate access to clean water or sanitation and 320,000 children are malnourished.
The collapse of basic services in Yemen is also taking its toll. It’s estimated that 14.1 million people lack sufficient access to healthcare, while 3 million children and pregnant or nursing mothers are in need of treatment. 1.8 million children are now out of school.
As life continues to be systematically obliterated in Yemen, millions of people are struggling for survival. They are homeless and hungry with no source of livelihood. As one of the few NGOs delivering aid inside Yemen, Human Appeal is working tirelessly and we thank you for your generous donations.
Please help to ensure the people of Yemen have the basics needed for survival; remember Yemen.Donate Now
