An already dire humanitarian situation in Yemen has now gotten progressively worse after conflict escalated in mid-March 2015. More than 1.5 million people have been affected. The majority of them, about 1.4 million 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.
