Latest news

    They are suffering the world’s largest humanitarian crisis caused by almost three years of civil war, with seemingly no end in sight to the crisis for millions of Yemenis.

    The proxy conflict is between the region’s strongest powers, Iran and Saudi Arabia, along with its allies.

    The UN says it’s alarmed by the recent rise in fighting. At least 85,000 Yemenis have been forced from their homes in the past two months.

    Yemenis are fleeing their homes on a daily basis from towns and cities such as Hodeidah and Taiz.

    More than two million are displaced.

    Others are trapped by air strikes, usually without access to basic supplies.

    So what can and should be done to change things?
