CARE Yemen Factsheet - September 2023

A snapshot of Yemen Fact Sheet

As the war in Yemen has entered its ninth year, the country remains one of the world’s largest humanitarian crises. According to the UN, in 2023, 21.6 million people (two-thirds of the population) are estimated to need humanitarian assistance, with 17.3 million people being in acute need. A collapsing economy and often non-existent public services mean that millions struggle to access food, water, education, and healthcare. This dire situation has been further exacerbated by frequent natural disaster events such as floods, drought, and the continued impacts of climate change.

CARE works to respond to emergencies, strengthen resilience, and ensure voices of the most vulnerable are heard. Across 14 governorates in Yemen, in the first half of 2023, CARE has reached 2.3 million people with food security and livelihoods, WASH, reproductive health, women’s economic empowerment, and education programs.
