Item 10, Technical assistance and capacity building – ID on HC report on Yemen
This statement is made on behalf of Save the Children and 17 civil society organisations, including organisations with current operations in Yemen.
Humanitarian Crisis in Free Fall
After almost four years of conflict, and despite all efforts to halt displacement, hunger and disease, Yemen remains the worst humanitarian crisis on earth. The suffering inflicted on Yemeni people is entirely manmade and will continue to deteriorate rapidly on all fronts without actions to end the violence.
Yemen Humanitarian Update, August 2018
The hostilities in Al-Hudaydah governorate continue to intensify, particularly in Ad Durayhimi city, where there are significant casualties. The intensity of the fighting, shelling and airstrikes has prevented ambulance services from reaching this area, which is south of Al-Hudaydah city. Some families have been able to escape to neighboring districts and Al-Hudaydah city. However plenty of families remain trapped in Ad Durayhimi.
