Yemen need a humanitarian assistance

Since violence broke out in late March 2015, Yemen remains the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. The cumulative impact of more than six (6) years of conflict, economic decline and institutional collapse, has left 24 million people – about 80% of the popuation – in need of humanitarian aid and protectionas well as 13.5 million people (45% of the population) were already facing acute food security.

The war had already caused an estimated 233,000 deaths, including 131,000 from indirect causes such as lack of food, health services and infrastructure. Additionally, due to the growing poverty in Yemeni families and the rising number of causalities and detainees of men. many women become vulnerable for abuse and had to involve in underpaid jobs.

As a result of conflict escalation, the number of displaced people in Yemen is increasing rapidly. According yo UNICEF 2020 report, 4.4 million Yemenis were internally displaced where 73% of them are women and children. Those displaced people are still vulnerable to disease outbreaks, natural disasters, and socio-political and economic contexts. They also lack the accessability to health and educational facilities or even clean drinking water. UNICEF 2020 report also revealed that 12.2 million children, that counts of more 35% of Yemen population, are in need of humanitarian assitance. Nearly 3.6 million children under 5 years old were screened for malnutrition in 2020, and 1.71 million children were internally displaced in the same year.
