Yemen is caught in the world’s largest humanitarian crisis and is on the verge of famine after years of conflict and a de facto blockade have pushed food and fuel prices out of reach.

Relentless fighting is leaving people without clean water, food, hospitals, and schools.

There are now nearly 16 million people—more than half of the population—who do not know where their next meal is coming from. More than three million people have fled their homes, and more than 20 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Since April 2017, there have been more than 1.3 million suspected cases of cholera, and 2,293 deaths from this preventable disease as a direct result of conflict. This is the one of the worst cholera outbreaks in recent history.

Since July 2015, Oxfam and our partners have reached three million people with assistance including cash and food vouchers.

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

COVID-19 and the communities we serve

As we prepare to weather this pandemic, we need to consider the vulnerabilities of women and low-wage workers, and those most at risk in poor countries. A letter from Oxfam America President and CEO Abby Maxman.

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.
