Millions of Yemenis require humanitarian assistance as the country continues to suffer from the fallout of a prolonged civil war.
At a high-level UN event, global donors pledged US$1.2 billion in aid operations to Yemen in 2023. The amount pledged remains well below the organisation’s target of US$4.3 billion. The UN missed its financing target for Yemen by US$2 billion last year.
Yemen's inflation is up to 45 percent. Elsewhere, food prices surged by 58 percent. In 2022.
13 million people in Yemen relied on the UN’s World Food Program for basic staples.
To date, the conflict has killed more than 375,000 people, sixty percent from indirect causes (mainly from malnutrition and disease).
The war has also damaged the country’s civilian and physical infrastructure, including its oil sector – Yemen’s only source of foreign exchange.
