Yemen

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 2017, there have been more than 1,073,082 suspected cases of cholera, and more than 2,263 deaths from this preventable disease as a direct result of conflict. This is the largest and fastest-spreading cholera outbreak in recorded history.

There are already a shocking 17.8 million people—60 percent of the population—who don’t know where they’ll get their next meal, with 8.4 million on the verge of famine in Yemen (a 24 percent increase since April 2017). More than three million people have fled their homes, and 22.2 million people (75 percent of the population) are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Since July 2015, Oxfam has reached 1.5 million people in nine governorates of Yemen with water and sanitation services, cash assistance, and food vouchers.

In response to a cholera outbreak, Oxfam is delivering water, sanitation, and hygiene to help prevent the spread of the disease.

Oxfam is helping nearly two million people in hunger-ravaged countries, including Yemen, providing families with desperately needed food, clean drinking water, and sanitation. But we need to scale up those efforts, and we urgently need your support to help save lives.
