Daily life, a struggle for survival in Yemen

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of the start of the conflict in Yemen. Since then, everyday life has gone from bad to worse. The war has left more than 22 million people - 75 per cent of the population - in need of humanitarian aid. The economy has been shattered, pushing the basics beyond the reach of many. You can help.

We won’t wait: as war ravages Yemen, its women strive to build peace

Conflict in Yemen has left thousands dead, millions homeless or hungry, and an economy in ruins. But hopes for peace talks are fading and a new approach is needed. Women and girls are particularly affected by the conflict and have a crucial role to play in building peace at the local level.

More than three years of devastating conflict have plunged Yemen into one of the world's gravest humanitarian crises. The country is on the brink of famine and is also now suffering the largest ever outbreak of cholera since records began. We are delivering emergency aid but we urgently need your help to do more.
