National and international partners continue responding to the humanitarian needs of men, women, and children across Yemen. Guided by the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality, and independence, the effort is organized out of five major humanitarian hubs, covering all 22 governorates. From Sana'a, Aden, Ibb, Al Hudaydah, and Sa'ada, humanitarians are addressing the needs of displaced persons seeking safety security and livelihoods, of host families aiding the displaced, and of other people affected by the continued conflict. The hubs of Ibb, Aden, and Sana'a have seen the greatest number of deaths and injuries since the conflict escalated in March 2015.(1) All the governorates across the country have been reached with some form of humanitarian or protection assistance.
