17.8 million people left food insecure

With the ongoing conflict in Yemen – already one of the poorest countries in the region – thousands of lives have been lost and almost 18 million people have been left food insecure. A country crippled by conflict is sadly now on the brink of famine.

With families facing ongoing armed conflict, displacement, disease and economic decline, an estimated 22.2 million people are now in need of humanitarian aid to survive – a figure so high that it is in fact the highest across the globe.

Yemen now officially hosts the world’s largest human induced food security crisis. Families and communities have been torn apart and left without even the most basic of living essentials:

  • 8.4 million people do not know where they will get their next meal from
  • Around 75% of the population require humanitarian aid to survive
  • 2 million people have been left displaced by conflict

If the situation continues to worsen, an additional 5.6 million people could be affected by famine in the coming months, causing the number of people in acute need of food to rise to 14 million. The situation is dire and things are getting worse each and every day.
