Yemen is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis today – 18.8 million people urgently need humanitarian assistance.

Conflict has devastated the nation leaving thousands of innocent civilians dead and three-quarters of Yemenis without access to safe water, food, healthcare or sanitation.

A situation of deadly airstrikes, destroyed infrastructure and a desperate lack of food and water has been worsened by flooding and landslides since July, with many people losing their homes.

Despite a very difficult operating environment, Tearfund's partners in Yemen are working to reach those suffering from the conflict. They have distributed food and hygiene kits to reduce the risk of deadly disease and prevent its spread, and are planning to help bring medicines and water.

Tearfund has launched an immediate response and we’re also part of the national DEC appeal, an initiative that brings together 13 leading UK charities in times of crisis.

Please give now for people suffering in Yemen.

In the unlikely event that we raise more than is needed to support our partners, your gift will be spent where the need is greatest.
