The MV Amsterdam carried more than 5,700 metric tons of food including wheat, pulses, vegetable oil and micronutrient powder, which is used to protect young children against malnutrition and anaemia. Since April, WFP has distributed more than 20,000 metric tons of food in nine governorates reaching more 1.5 million Yemenis. However, more distributions are needed as the recent conflict added around 2.5 million Yemenis to the 10 million people already considered “food-insecure,” who were struggling to get enough food for a normal life even before the conflict began.

The people of this region -- where the climate is largely unsuited to crop production -- often are forced to sell their animals and other assets in order to buy food.  The urban section of the population is also vulnerable to high food prices, since much of what they rely on is imported. WFP is assisting almost 70,000 people through food distributions and food-for-work activities, which aim to make communities more self sufficient.
