The current internal conflict and political instability in Yemen resulted in the near collapse of social and economic life. Government and its bodies are unable to deliver service to the people for a while now. Therefore, IHH Humanitarian Relief Organization keeps delivering aid to Yemen, which faces a critical humanitarian crisis due to the on-going conflict for one year.

Recently, IHH has delivered food aid to 3.000 people living in el-Hudaida region, which suffers sanctions imposed by Husis. The current aid campaign, when completed, will have delivered emergency aid hampers to 2.000 families that make up around 15.000 people.
