The UK’s £160 million pledge at the 2020 Yemen Humanitarian Pledging Conference was the third largest in the world and brings our total commitment to Yemen to £970 million since the conflict started in 2015.

This funding will be delivered through partners including UN agencies, NGOs and the Yemeni Social Fund for Development, a national development institution that will be critical to Yemen’s future recovery.

We have already disbursed 32% of our £160 million pledge and will continue to provide funding to our partners to ensure they are able to deliver assistance through the year.
