The conflict in Yemen, which has been ongoing for over seven years now, has had a huge impact on all civilians and has been labeled as one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. The UN estimates that Yemen has witnessed up to 377,000 deaths since fighting broke out in March 2015, this being the result of both direct and indirect causes of the ongoing conflict. During the ongoing conflict period, millions of people in Yemen have experienced an economic crisis, increased poverty levels, and disruption of public services, such as health provision, infrastructure, and water services among others. Internal displacement has been reported across the country, highest in some governorates such as Marib, thereby increasing the need for humanitarian assistance. However, as can be predicted with most conflicts, some of the most affected are women and children.
