Yemen: As airstrikes declared over, a political solution must be reached to prevent humanitarian catastrophe, warns CARE
More must be done to protect and access civilians with humanitarian assistance
YEMEN-(April 3, 2015)--After a week of heavy fighting across parts of Yemen, an already dire humanitarian situation could turn into a major crisis if the violence continues, warns CARE.
The humanitarian situation in Yemen is worsening as political instability and the conflict continues. After decades of chronic underdevelopment and socio-economic crisis, 15.9 million people – more than 60 percent of the population – are now in need of humanitarian assistance.
