DRC began its operations in Yemen in Aden in 2008, primarily to respond to the needs of migrants in the country. DRC scaled up its response in 2015 in response to the outbreak of conflict, and is now one of the largest INGOs working in Yemen. Today, DRC is able to meet the urgent needs of those affected by the conflict across the country through the delivery of fast-paced and high-quality emergency response, alongside longer-term programming.
