I visited Yemen on the 12 March. During my visit I met President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi and the main humanitarian organisations operating in the country. I also announced £6.1 million of humanitarian assistance and called upon the international community to do more to meet humanitarian needs.

Department for International Development Ministers and officials have discussed the need for further contributions to the UN humanitarian appeal with a range of international counterparts, and will continue to do so, including at the Gulf Cooperation Council Secretariat meeting on the humanitarian situation in Yemen being held in Riyadh this month.
