Humanitarian assistance has been distributed to nearly 66,000 displaced Yemenis by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in the past six months, the fund said on Sunday.
UNICEF said the assistance included “food, family basic hygiene kits and female dignity kits,” according to a statement.
The UN agency added that the humanitarian aid was part of UNICEF’s Rapid Response Mechanism program which aims “to reach the hardest-hit parts of Yemen.”
There are around 4.3 million Yemenis displaced since the start of the conflict in Yemen in 2014, according to UN figures.
Since 2014, when Iranian-aligned Houthi rebels captured much of the country, including the capital Sanaa, Yemen has been engulfed by violence and instability.
A Saudi-led military coalition entered the war in early 2015 to restore the Yemeni government to power.
One of the worst humanitarian crises in the world has been created by the eight-year conflict, with millions suffering from hunger.
