In its recent report, the United Nations International Children's Fund or UNICEF described the ongoing conflict in Yemen as
"A living hell for children."
According to the United Nations the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is causing a near-total collapse of the health system in Yemen.
Even before the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, Yemen was already in grip of a famine that was going to have a direct impact on 14 million people that is almost half of country’s population. COVID-19 has made the situation worse.
Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the Middle East. The ongoing civil war has made the situation even worse. It is one of the lowest-ranking countries on the Human Development Index and is 177th out of 189 countries graded.
It has a population of 30.5 million people and of that 20.1 million people face hunger in the absence of food assistance.

Food insecurity in Yemen
Yemen imports 90% of the food, but the ongoing conflict has disrupted the supply chains and that is causing serious situation in the country.
The country need almost $3 billion worth of humanitarian assistance, but so far it has only managed half of it. With the coronavirus pandemic, the situation is only getting worse. The Yemeni people will need all the support we can offer.
