-Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock-Statement to the Security Council on the humanitarian situation in Yemen -New York, 17 April 2018

Mr. President,
Yemen remains the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Three quarters of the population, more than 22 million people, urgently require some form of humanitarian help, including 8.4 million people who struggle to find their next meal. The crisis is overwhelming families and institutions and is now affecting nearly every sector and every aspect of Yemeni life.
With swift and joint action, conditions for the Yemeni people can improve. On the political front, you have just heard from Martin, the Secretary-General’s envoy.
