More than seven years of armed conflict in Yemen has caused tens of thousands of civilian casualties and displaced over four million people, making Yemen one of the world’s largest humanitarian crises and aid operations. The impact of the crisis is most visible in the pervasiveness of malnutrition, disease outbreaks, and civilian casualties and displacements in Yemen. The current level of hunger in Yemen is unprecedented and is causing severe hardship for millions of people. Despite ongoing humanitarian assistance, 17.4 million Yemenis are food insecure. The number of food insecure people is projected to go up to 19 million by December 2022.
Our response in Yemen is subject to funding and our aim is to strengthen the community through improving food security and long-term food resilience through agriculture and managed chicken farming.
