YEMEN

COMPLEX EMERGENCY RESPONSE

Widespread conflict throughout Yemen has forced nearly 2 million people from their homes. The situation has been compounded by widespread famine and water scarcity. As of mid-2017, there are over 24 million people in need of assistance.

Across Yemen, deaths caused by cholera have skyrocketed. More than 1,966 people have died as of the beginning of July 2017, one third of whom are children. The rate of contraction has tripled, with 5,000 new suspected cholera cases emerging every day, leading to over 494,000 suspected cases of the waterborne disease.
