Donate to Oxfam's Yemen response
Every report from our own staff and news teams on the ground brings harrowing accounts of families facing agonising hunger and suffering. Now, Yemen is just a step away from famine.
The humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate with fuel shortages, rising food prices and a severe lack of basic services making daily survival a painful struggle for millions.
Before this latest escalation in the conflict, more than 10 million Yemenis were already going hungry every day. Yemen was the poorest country in the Middle East and poverty and inequality was increasing.
Now half of the population - 14.4 million people - require help with food.
In response to the Yemen crisis, Oxfam has reached more than one million people with water and sanitation services, cash assistance and food vouchers. Help has included:
Sajjad Mohammad Sajid, Oxfam Country Director in Yemen, said: "Ground fighting, shelling and airstrikes by all warring parties have compounded an already severe food crisis and could push Yemen to the edge, with 7.6 million people already severely food insecure.
"People desperately need food and water, medicine and health services, they need aid that can reach them - ultimately they need the conflict to end so they can rebuild their lives. All those fuelling Yemen's tragedy need to stop being arms brokers and start becoming peace brokers. The international community must redouble its efforts to help bring this crisis to a peaceful resolution."
Oxfam and the Disasters Emergency Committee
Oxfam today issued a stinging condemnation of widespread political complicity in the Yemen conflict as the UN launches its latest plan to help millions of people caught up in the crisis.
Humanitarian worker Duoi Ampilan explains why, despite the dangers and the distress, he still loves his job - and does all he can to make sure your support reaches as many people as possible.
The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) appeal for Yemen has raised a total of £8 million since it launched on Tuesday, with donations continuing to pour in.
