WFP Warns of Lack of Funding in Yemen (For the Media)

WFP reached a record 12.4 million food-insecure people with food assistance in August. Yemen is a deeply complex and volatile operating environment. Despite the many challenges, WFP continues to expand its assistance across the country to prevent a further deterioration in the precarious food insecurity situation.
Yemen remains the largest food security crisis in the world. Over four years of conflict have pushed millions of Yemenis to the brink famine. Some food security indicators have improved in hard-hit areas but the situation remains precarious and the humanitarian community cannot slow the pace of assistance now.
