Since the intensification of fighting in March, the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance has increased from 15.9 million to 21.2 million people. This means that 82 per cent of Yemen’s population now requires humanitarian assistance in some form to meet their basic needs for food, water, healthcare and shelter. In November, two cyclones battered the Island of Socotra and Yemen's southern coastline, adding to the suffering men, women, and children in Yemen are enduring.
