We are providing £200 million in support to Yemen this financial year (2019/20). This funding, which takes our total commitment to Yemen to £770 million since the conflict began in 2015, is providing vital support to millions of vulnerable Yemenis.

We provided £170 million in aid to Yemen last financial year (2018/19). This support included helping meet the food needs of four million Yemenis for one month.
