Humanitarian action takes a major boost to reach the donors' finances of the Yemen's humanitarian response plans from 2015 to October 2006 to $ 6 billion and $ 263 million, but "the country's humanitarian sectors experience improving significantly; moreover, it is continuing to rise from one year to another".

Emergency Relief Coordinator - OCHA announced that Yemen needs 4 billion dollars to provide the needs for the year 2019 compared to 3.5 for Syria.

According to United Nations data, the international community's support for Yemen's response plans since the Houthi militia's coup on the State's Institutions has reached $ 800 million in 2015, $ 963 million for 2016, $ 2.2 billion in 2017, and a response plan for 2018 about $ 2.3, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the UAE paid 1.2 billion of the response plan.


A national expert in the humanitarian work confirmed to Newsyemen that the funding of the international community, international organizations and donors for the response plan only reach 40% or less.
A humanitarian expert who asked not to be identified and a head of the partnering national organizations recognized by UN organizations said that the United Nations humanitarian coordination agency (OCHA) deducts about 50 % of the total humanitarian response to Yemen annually.

He explained that the United Nations deducts funds of funding of the response plan under several items: 15% of the costs of the conference organized by the United Nations so as to call the international community to mobilize funding, and 15% risk insurance because the United Nations classifies work in Yemen at a high risk so as to raise wages and costs, the team work raises it a double, and 20% ratios under other items go to the United Nations.

He added that the remaining amount as 7% goes to national organizations and partners, including up to 12%. The national organizations that partners in accordance with international compliance standards and performance evaluation report are 32 Yemeni organizations.

The United Nations organizations employ hundreds of French, Italian, Americans and other consultants and experts working in Yemen, who are paid more than the Yemenis who are in need.
A study assessing the humanitarian situation in Yemen, researcher Iman Sharian, said that the practices on the ground showed the absence of the role of the supervisory government at the United Nations organizations and international organizations and local humanitarian actors.

The international community is active in Yemen to reduce the humanitarian crisis resulting from the armed conflict, which enters its fourth year, through the arms of states, affiliated organizations or government institutions, and international organizations that provide humanitarian interventions through their own funding outside the framework of a response plan such as the WHO, the Save the Children, UAE Red Crescent, the King Salman Center, and other organizations.
