Summary

High-Level Pledging Event on the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen

Description

Background

Seven years of conflict and economic collapse have devastated the
country and exhausted people's coping capacities. Meanwhile,
unprecedented funding shortages have forced humanitarian organisations
to cut lifesaving aid over recent weeks, including food, clean water,
healthcare, and protection. In short, this means fewer people are
receiving the help they need at a time when they need it most. 

The high-level pledging event for Yemen will represent a critical
opportunity for the international community to demonstrate its continued
commitment to the people of Yemen.
