Yemen

Fieldset

The Middle Eastern country of Yemen borders Saudi Arabia to the north and Oman to the east. Civil war broke out in Yemen in 2015, when fighting began between anti-government Houthi forces and the Saudi-led coalition.

Millions of people have had to flee their homes. Hundreds of health facilities across the country have stopped functioning due to airstrikes and shelling, plus a lack of supplies, funding and staff. The rising cost of living has made it extremely hard for families to meet basic needs.

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) first worked in Yemen in 1994. Our recent projects have focused on supporting the Yemeni populations affected by the conflict on all sides of the frontlines.
