Yemen: We must act now to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe

Yemen is experiencing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Close to 19 million people—two thirds of the population—need humanitarian assistance and protection. These people include more than 10 million extremely vulnerable Yemenis who require immediate assistance. A child under age 5 now dies every 10 minutes of preventable causes.

The crisis in Yemen is entirely man-made. The country has been grappling with the disastrous effects of a conflict that has forced millions of people to flee their homes, exacerbated chronic humanitarian needs, and killed or injured thousands. OCHA
