The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced nearly $165 million in additional humanitarian assistance for people affected by the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. This funding will provide lifesaving aid for Yemenis continuing to face humanitarian crisis after almost seven years of war that has left 20 million people struggling to survive without basic necessities, including more than two million young children facing deadly malnutrition.

This assistance will allow the UN World Food Program to continue providing emergency food assistance, reaching more than 11 million people every month with food provided by the American people, including in communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Aid alone, however, cannot meet the vast and growing humanitarian needs in Yemen. While aid from the international community has so far prevented people from slipping into famine, the recent escalation of violence in Marib is only increasing humanitarian needs as it threatens to displace hundreds of thousands of people, placing further strain on an already stretched humanitarian response.
