Therefore, IHH Humanitarian Relief Organization keeps delivering aid to Yemen, which faces a critical humanitarian crisis due to the on-going conflict for one year.

Recently, IHH has delivered food aid to 3.000 people living in el-Hudaida region, which suffers sanctions imposed by Husis. The current aid campaign, when completed, will have delivered emergency aid hampers to 2.000 families that make up around 15.000 people.
