The situation in Jemen has been instabel since 2011, but in 2014 and 2015 circumstances worstened due to militar violence. There is no political solution to problem yet en ICRC warned for the humanitarian implications of the civil war. UN estimates that approximately 80% of population (around 25 million people) have no acces to clean drinking water, hygiene or medical facilities. Another 12 million people risk famine. An estimated 4,000 people died because of the conflict.
This appeal is to support ICRS and Yemeni Red Crescent Society in assistence to civil population in Yemen.
Except for MSF and the UN no other humanitarian organisation is active in Yemen. HRCS has an available network of 600 active volunteers. The ICRC has 250 local employees deployed, with an additional 45 international staff.
