Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East, continues to suffer from an ever-growing humanitarian crisis. Armed conflict in a region already afflicted with poverty and weakening infrastructure has contributed to the suffering of millions of civilians caught up in the violence. They are faced with shortages of food, medical supplies, fuel, water, and electricity. More than 1000 civilians have died since the beginning of the most recent outbreak of violence, and thousands more have been injured or displaced from their homes.

 

Despite the difficulties posed by continued violence and regional destabilization, aid groups are responding to the crisis by providing desperately needed food and supplies. In the right sidebar, we have compiled a list of highly-rated charities that are directly providing aid to Yemen. Click the links on the right to learn more about these organizations and what they are doing to help stop this crisis.
