The UN’s 2019 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan is 69.5% funded so far this year.

We thank all donors who have provided funding, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, who provided approximately $800 million between them in September.

We continue to encourage all donors to rapidly release their remaining pledges and consider providing further funding.
