For years now, Yemen, the poorest country in the Arab world, has been ravaged by a devastating civil war. Multiple factions and foreign powers are entangled in the conflict, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. The humanitarian toll of this war is staggering, as of October 2023, 21.6 million Yemenis are dependent on humanitarian assistance, including 4.5 million internally displaced people (IDPs), and 71,800 refugees and asylum seekers.

The Humanitarian Crisis

  • A Man-Made Disaster: According to the UN, the situation in Yemen is one of the world’s worst man-made humanitarian disasters.
  • In Dire Need: two-thirds of the population—21.6 million people—are in need of humanitarian assistance.
  • Urgent Assistance: 11.3 million people are in acute need, requiring immediate assistance to survive.
  • Food Insecurity: More than 17 million people do not know where their next meal is coming from.
  • Children at Risk: 4.5 million children under the age of five are threatened by severe acute malnutrition.
  • Healthcare Crisis: With only 51% of the country’s health facilities fully functioning, 19.7 million people lack basic healthcare.
  • Cholera Outbreak: Yemen is struggling with the world’s largest cholera outbreak, resulting in more than 2.5 million suspected cases and 4,000 associated deaths since April 2017.
Key Strategies for Achieving Zero Hunger

Embrace Relief’s Response

In partnership with a local Yemeni charity, Embrace Relief has been providing much-needed food items to those in need since 2021. Each relief pack contains the essential items:

  • 25 kg of wheat flour
  • 5 kg of rice
  • 5 kg of sugar
  • 2 liters of cooking oil

More than 300,000 people in and around the capital city of Sana’a and in the countryside of Taiz have already received these vital food items. Most have been delivered directly to the doors of those in need, while others have been picked up from our distribution center.

In addition, for this year, our goal is to provide fresh bread daily to 50 families residing in Al-Azrageen Camp, Sana’a, Yemen through our Breaking Bread with Yemen program.
