Yemen—one of the oldest inhabited areas on Earth—is also one of the poorest and least developed countries in the Arab world, even before the conflict began. Now they face intense violence along with drought conditions and severe economic decline. 17.8 million people are food insecure, and of them, 11.3 million are considered severely malnourished, meaning they need humanitarian aid to survive. The country’s child malnutrition rates are among the highest in the world: around half of all Yemeni children under 5 years old are stunted.
March 2018 marks three years since conflict escalated in the region. Ever since, IRUSA has been delivering life-saving aid to people in dangerous areas like Ta’iz, Saa’da, and Aden.
Since the conflict erupted in 2015, 3 million people have been displaced due to increased surges of violence that have caused dozens of more deaths and hundreds of injuries, including civilians.
Helping to heal the people of Yemen is part of the legacy IRUSA is building in the Middle East. External Event Url
