Yemen is on the Brink of Famine

Millions need your support

Yemenis displaced by conflict are four times more likely to face hunger

Yemen is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Six years of conflict have been devastating for millions of people, leaving more than 20 million people reliant on humanitarian aid to survive.

“We live on a day to day basis, never knowing how we will feed ourselves.” Lubna, a displaced Yemeni mother.

Continuing conflict, the deteriorating economy and the negative impact of COVID-19 have resulted in 11 million people facing crisis levels of food insecurity today; and 5 million Yemenis are now at the brink of famine.

UNHCR is dedicated to supporting those in need but our essential programmes are critically underfunded.

Without an urgent surge of support, millions of lives will be at risk.

  • Cash assistance to help displaced families pay for food, rent and medicine
