    Rare Video from the Frontlines of the Conflict in Yemen Shows Escalating Violence is Increasing Hunger, Displacement and Desperation (For the Media)

    The closure of Yemen’s ports (sea, land and airports) for nearly three weeks in November 2017 had a dramatic humanitarian impact. Within 24 hours, prices for food, fuel and water had soared. Since the end of the blockade, twelve WFP-chartered vessels have offloaded over 270,000 metric tons of wheat. Another WFP-chartered vessel carried four US-funded mobile cranes into Hodeidah port early this year. WFP and humanitarian partners need every road, bridge, port and airport to be able to deliver food and humanitarian aid to the millions of people in Yemen who need food, health and humanitarian assistance. Greater access to more people would speed up the delivery of humanitarian supplies to every area in the country where there are needs. We are ready to assist using our logistics expertise.

    Hunger Peaks as South Sudan Marks ‘Uhuru’ (Independence) (For the Media)

    As South Sudan marks seven years of Independence since seceding from the north, the world’s youngest nation remains deeply embroiled in conflict that has resulted in a widespread humanitarian crisis.  WFP and partners aim to reach up to 4.8 million hungry people with assistance in some of the worst affected areas across the country by July. Without a sustained, comprehensive response, millions of people are at risk in this fifth straight year of conflict.
