Yemen's invisible food crisis
Since March 2015, Yemen has been gripped by a conflict involving different forces including the Houthis, the former president, and the Government of Yemen backed by a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia.
During an intense 12 months, markets have been bombed, water plants and businesses destroyed and the majority of essential services have ground to a halt. Almost 600 health facilities have closed due to damage or a shortage of supplies or staff. In the first half of March 2016 alone, airstrikes and naval shelling hit four markets and three farms.
