2021 (EN)

Yemen, the most serious humanitarian crisis of our time.
The country is exhausted and the suffering suffered by the population has reached levels never seen before. The figures speak for themselves: 20.7 million people need humanitarian aid to survive.
Over 4 million people have been forced to flee their homes and are now displaced within national borders.
The escalation of the conflict has led to a dramatic increase in the prices of food and other raw materials.
Consequently, the main problem right now is the lack of food: around 16 million people suffer from hunger.
In some areas of the country, about 1 in 4 children suffer from acute malnutrition
