An already dire humanitarian situation in Yemen has now gotten progressively worse after conflict escalated in mid-March 2015. More than 1,000 people have been killed, and more than 4,000 injured since this recent bout of clashes began. And more than 300,000 people have become internally displaced—leaving in search of safety away from the more intense conflict zones.
Conditions are deteriorating quickly, and they’re only expected to get worse. Electricity cuts and shortages of fuel and water are complicating difficulties for many people. Hospitals are overwhelmed, and food and medical aid are scarce. Families are suffering.
