When war tore through her home town of Taizz, Hadiya fled with nothing.
Now, she is camped out with her children and grandchildren in a wreck of a building many miles away – unable to return home and uncertain what the future might hold. Photo: ©UNHCR/Shabia Mantoo
More than two million people like Hadiya have currently been uprooted by Yemen’s war. Please help us reach these families with life-saving aid.

What’s happening in Yemen?
Four years of fighting in Yemen have driven millions of people from their homes. Many families fled with just the clothes on their backs and now face a bitter struggle for survival. UNHCR is on the ground, helping families find shelter, essential supplies and healthcare. Public support is urgently needed to help us reach more people and save lives.
UNHCR is leading a coordinated effort across the region to protect Syrians who have been forced to flee. This includes emergency relief and shelter for those escaping escalations in the conflict, and ongoing care such as education and healthcare.

After their father was killed in fighting, Muna and Sakina fled with their remaining family.
Now they’re living in the Dharwan settlement outside Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, where conditions are basic and overcrowded.
Thanks to UNHCR and our donors, the family has been provided with emergency shelter and other essential items, so they can survive through the months ahead.
