Ordinary people are bearing the brunt of an increasingly brutal conflict in Yemen.

More than two years of war have unleashed a cascade of deadly consequences across Yemen, from the unprecedented outbreak of cholera earlier this year, to the severe malnutrition stalking the countryside as the cost of food soars.

Meanwhile, hundreds of health centres have been damaged or destroyed, deprived of essential supplies or abandoned by health workers who have not received their government salaries for more than a year.

"When I visited Yemen in September, I met Fatma, a nine-year-old who lay listless and emaciated. The staff had treated her for severe malnutrition earlier this year, saving her life with a blood transfusion, but she was back with one of the worst cases of malnutrition they had ever seen. We did not know whether she could survive."

The dire needs across Yemen have led MSF to massively scale up medical operations. We have nearly 1,600 expert staff across the country, including 82 staff members from abroad, working in 13 hospitals and supporting 18 more.

Yet the rising needs far exceed what we can address.
