The UK is the third-largest humanitarian donor to Yemen, with £205 million this financial year. This provides enough food for 3.4 million people for at least a month, nutrition support for 1.7 million people, and clean water and sanitation for an expected 1.2 million people. We play a leading role in lobbying all sides to find a peaceful solution to the conflict.
