The UK has committed £214 million in humanitarian assistance to Yemen this financial year (2020/21), of which £207m has already been disbursed. This takes our total commitment to over £1 billion since the conflict began in 2015.

Our funding is providing support to at least 500,000 vulnerable people each month to help them buy food and household essentials, enrolling 25,000 children on malnutrition programmes and providing 1 million people with improved water supply and basic sanitation across Yemen.
