Yemeni people are facing incredible hardships due to ongoing conflict that has left t least 27.4 million people in need of humanitarian support. The violent and unpredictable environment has devastated millions of people's lives. 



More than 14 million people do not have enough food.

An estimated 14.5 million people require assistance to access safe drinking water and sanitation.

The cholera outbreak has infected more than 200.000 people.

Nearly half of all health facilities are non-functional.

On average 20 people - women, children and men - are dying ever day from treatable woulds and curable diseases due to the unavailability of drugs and lack of operating hospitals. 


The Red Cross and Red Crescent teams are distributing household items, food, and personal hygiene items to families. We are also supplying materials necessary for maintaining essential infrastructures and services such as water, electricity and sewerage.


Simultaneously, the need for medical support is massive and the Red Cross are providing access and support in healthcare. A severe cholera outbreak poses an additional threat to many communities. In response to this unprecedented epidemic, Red Cross staff are supporting 27 cholera treatment facilities around the country.


The Irish Red Cross continues to closely monitor the situation in the conflict-stricken country. Since October 2016, we have two aid workers providing support to those affected in the field of health and economic security. In response to the cholera outbreak we are providing financial support to our local partner, Yemen Red Crescent Society, who are providing health care to thousands of people at risk from this epidemic.
