Conflicts, hunger and epidemics wear down the country.
According to the Fragile States Index 2022, Yemen is considered the most unstable country in the world. When civil war broke out between Sunni and Shiite factions in 2015, several million people fled the armed fighting. Despite current peace negotiations, the people are in a dire situation: as a result of the war, as well as the outbreak of cholera, more than half of the population is in need of humanitarian aid, according to the United Nations. According to the Human Development Report 2021/2022, the Near Eastern republic has a population of around 33 million.
23.4 million people in Yemen are dependent on humanitarian aid due to the civil war. Over two million children are acutely malnourished. One in two has no access to clean drinking water and sanitary facilities. Together with a local partner, we help with food, water and hygiene articles.
