Some 18,000 internally displaced people live in the Al Mazraq camp in Hajja Governorate of northwestern Yemen. They depend on food aid.
The Al Mazraq camp is located in a harsh area of Northern Yemen plagued by dust storms.
People in Al Mazraq have no other source of food other than international aid.
Among the commodities distributed by WFP are ready to eat food such as High Energy Biscuits.
Of the 250,000 civilians displaced by the conflict in northern Yemen, about 50,000 are under the age of five.
More than half of all children under age five are chronically malnourished - 2.6 million children (according to UNICEF State of the World’s Children). And more than 1 in 10 suffers from acute malnourishment.
WFP continues to face a serious funding shortfall in all of its Yemen programmes which are 75% under-resourced for the first six months of 2010.
