Humanitarian tragedy

The situation in Yemen is a humanitarian tragedy. Five years of intense conflict has left 24.1 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. #YemenCantWait

Almost 100,000 people have died in this war, hut despite all the suffering in Yemen it has become a forgotten conflict.

After 5 years of war:

  • 2 million children under the age of 5 are severely malnourished
  • Around 80% of the population are in need of humanitarian assistance
  • 19.7 million people don’t have access to basic healthcare
  • 17.8 million people are in needof water and sanitation

Yemen was already the poorest country in the Middle East when the conflict broke out in March 2015, and the continuous warfare has devastated the country.

On the ground

Islamic Relief is currently working in 17 of Yemen’s 22 governorates. We provided humanitarian assistance to 3,407,864 individuals across the country through food security, livelihoods, health, nutrition, orphans and child welfare and WASH projects. We implemented more than 69 projects during 2019.

With your support we can help these communities in their hour of need.

We’re continuing to distribute food packs and essential food vouchers to provide critical aid to families in need.
However, we need your help to reach as many people as possible and widen our response.
