Humanitarian Aid and Protection
As the Yemen conflict enters its fourth year, over 22 million people – and majority of them children – need urgent humanitarian aid and protection. Some 8.4 million people are suffering from the extreme shortage of food and do not know where their next meal will come from. The country’s water and sanitation infrastructure has also been severely damaged, posing serious health risks. An estimated 16 million people do not have access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene. In 2017, more than 1 million people suffered from cholera or watery diarrhea. Water and sanitation systems struggle to keep pace.
The United Nations has confirmed that more than 6,500 children have been killed or injured in the violence since the conflict began.
