    WFP Executive Director Appeals for Peace from Frontline of Conflict in Yemen (For the Media)

    WFP is already providing food assistance to 7 – 8 million of those most in need, every month, but the situation has now got so dire that WFP is preparing to scale up.  WFP Food and other humanitarian support has been instrumental in helping to prevent famine, but the indications are that even greater efforts will be needed to avert mass starvation.  The port of Hodeidah receives about 70 percent of imports into the country which depends on imports for nearly all its commercial food requirements. It is also vital to keep open the supply routes out of the city so that north and central Yemen can be provisioned with food and other vital supplies.  WFP’s current target of providing food assistance to 8 million people is budgeted at US$125 million per month. As the food security situation deteriorates and WFP prepares to scale up its food and nutrition programmes, it is clear our funding requirements are set to increase accordingly.

    WFP Planning to Feed Up to 14Million in Yemen as Fighting Intensifies in Critical Port of Hodeidah (For the Media)

    Yemen is the largest hunger crisis in the world. Millions of people are living on the edge of famine and the situation is getting worse by the day. WFP is providing massive levels of food assistance to those most in need and is putting plans in place to reach up to 14 million people a month (mostly with food but, where possible, via cash-based transfers).  The food security crisis is man-made. It is the result of conflict, economic collapse, rising prices, and problems of supply and distribution. Many food items are beyond the reach of most Yemenis. Intense fighting in and around the port city of Hodeidah has caused major delays to the arrival of humanitarian and commercial cargo. As a result, the price of food in shops has shot up beyond the reach of many people. WFP is grateful for the support of donors but, as the situation gets worse, it has become apparent that our funding needs are set to rise.
