US$4.3 BILLION NEEDED TO HELP 17.3 MILLION PEOPLE IN YEMEN
The Humanitarian Country Team in Yemen released the 2022 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) on 30 April, seeking nearly $4.3 billion to reverse a steady deterioration of the humanitarian situation. The 2022 HRP targets 17.3 million out of the 23.4 million people in need of life-saving humanitarian assistance and protection services. “The worsening humanitarian crisis in Yemen is a reality that we need to urgently address,” said Mr.
David Gressly, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen. “The numbers this year are staggering.
Over 23 million people – or almost three-quarters of Yemen’s population – now need assistance.
That is an increase of almost three million people from 2021. Nearly 13 million people are already facing acute levels of need.”
