Giving visibility to a forgotten conflict

Giving visibility to a forgotten conflict

The civil war in Yemen began in 2014, and soon took on a global dimension when the advance of the Houti minority towards the south of the country forced the incumbent president into exile. With accusations of human rights abuses by both sides, the UN estimated over 377,000 deaths until 2021 with 60% attributed to indirect factors such as famine and limited access to health services.

One of the worst humanitarian crisis in the world

The humanitarian crisis in Yemen persists today, with 80% of the population in urgent need of assistance and struggling for safe water and adequate healthcare services. Across the country, 17 million people, including 6.1 million women and children, wake up hungry every day. And in facing severe food shortages, they remain exposed to violence and abuse. All in the indifference of the international community.

Collapse of the education system

Due to the ongoing conflict, more than 2,700 schools have been destroyed, partially damaged or converted to non-educational uses. Climate events have exacerbated the situation, leading to severe flooding affecting a large number of schools. Over 2.3 million children still live in refugee camps, often separated from their families. More than half of these children face continuous interruptions in their education as they have to move frequently.


Aden, Yemen's second most populous city, is home to over 1 million people, 57% of whom require urgent care and more than 100,000 are internally displaced. The healthcare system is under pressure with increasingly limited access to medical facilities. Schools, damaged by war, suffer closures and interruptions, depriving children of an adequate education. The shortage of teachers, teaching materials and the insufficient quality of education are problems amplified by the consequences of the conflict.
