Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen 2013

13 Dec 2012

Yemen is one of the world’s major humanitarian crises, with more than half of the population affected and a third targeted for humanitarian aid.

Thirteen million people do not have access to safe water and sanitation, 10.5 million are food-insecure, 431,000 are displaced, and 90,000 children do not have access to education.  At least 100,000 vulnerable migrants pass through Yemen annually, and the country hosts over a quarter of a million refugees.  Of particular concern are also the increasing returnee flows in the south: over 80,000 have returned and need assistance.  Almost 1 million Yemeni girls and boys under 5 are suffering from acute malnutrition, of whom more than 250,000 have life-threatening severe acute malnutrition.  Even those whose acute malnutrition is moderate, if left untreated, will not grow to their full potential.  Epidemics too are a significant concern, with 170 children having died from measles this year.  Apart from disease, children continue to be subjected to extreme violence: this year, 174 children have been killed and/or maimed, including 49 victims of mines,far surpassing the numbers for 2011.
