War, blockade, high food and fuel prices have pushed Yemen to the verge of famine.
Relentless fighting is leaving people without clean water, food, hospitals, and schools.
Since April, there have been more than 900,000 suspected cases of cholera, and more than 2,000 deaths from this preventable disease as a direct result of the conflict. This is the largest and fastest-spreading cholera outbreak in recorded history.
There are already a shocking 17 million people (60 percent of the population) who don’t know where they’ll get their next meal, with seven million on the verge of famine in Yemen. More than three million people have fled their homes, and 20 million people (75 percent of the population) are in need of humanitarian assistance.
Since July 2015 Oxfam has reached more than one million people in eight governorates of Yemen with water and sanitation services, cash assistance, and food vouchers. In response to cholera outbreak, Oxfam is delivering water, sanitation, and hygiene to help prevent the spread of the disease. The delivery of clean water, the cleaning and chlorination of water sources, along with the building of latrines and the organization of hygiene awareness sessions have benefitted 1,302,510 people.
