After a brief ceasefire in mid-May 2019, new clashes erupted in Yemen between Houthi fighters and pro-government forces, complicating peace efforts to end the four-year war.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed or injured since 2015, including at least 17,000 civilians. An estimated 3.65 million people have been displaced and extensive damage caused to infrastructure.
In early 2019, the @unitednations estimated that 24 million people – 80% of the population – required humanitarian assistance or protection. We are providing shelter, financial assistance and psycho-social support to the displaced, including 280,000 refugees who remain in Yemen despite the conflict.
