We thank all donors who have provided funding to the UN’s 2019 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan, 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 to this year’s UN appeal.

We await the release of the UN’s 2020 Yemen Humanitarian Needs Overview and accompanying Humanitarian Response Plan, which will inform our decisions on how we provide our funding next year.
