Ongoing conflict is devastating Yemen. Humanitarian partners now estimate that 21.2 million people – or 82 per cent of the population – require some kind of humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs or protect their fundamental rights. The severity of needs among vulnerable people has also intensified across sectors as a political solution continues to be absent and abuses continue to occur in the context of widespread insecurity and in disregard of international humanitarian law and human rights law. Compounding this reality, in November, two cyclones battered the Island of Socotra and Yemen's southern coastline, increasing the suffering of men, women, and children in Yemen's southern region. Despite the challenges, humanitarian have continued to deliver much needed assistance and to reach people in need, across the entire country.
