After seven years of conflict, Yemen is one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Around 23.7 million people are in need of dire humanitarian assistance, including nearly 13 million children. Nearly 6 million people have been uprooted from their homes as violence, collapsing services, and threats of large-scale famine have taken over the country. Despite humanitarian aid, a staggering 17.4 million Yemenis remain food insecure. To add, preventable diseases such as cholera, diphtheria, measles, and dengue fever still exist in the country today.
Women and children are bearing the brunt of the crisis. Malnutrition rates among women and children remain one of the highest in the world. Today, 1.3 million mothers and 2.2 million children under the age of five require treatment for acute malnutrition.

Preventable diseases, including waterborne diseases such as cholera, still exist in Yemen today.
