Oxfam's warehouse in Saada, in the Northern Governorate in Yemen, after a coalition airstrike hit on Saturday 18 April 2015. The warehouse contained humanitarian supplies used in Oxfam's water and sanitation projects.
Regular imports of food and fuel have not reached Yemen since the escalation in violence began, due to the closure of land, sea and air routes into the country. Yemen relies on imports to meet more than 80 per cent of national food consumption, with 90 per cent of staple food items, such as wheat, and all rice imported.
Before this latest escalation in the conflict, more than 10 million Yemenis - almost half the population - were already going hungry every day. The absence of imports is now pushing food and fuel prices out of reach of even more people.
Oxfam plans to provide help for 80,000 people in the coming weeks, and build up to a total of about 1 million people, as access improves.
Oxfam has already distributed cash to more 4,000 households (about 28,000 people) to help them buy basic necessities. We have also delivered water containers and filters to the Hodeidah area and are sending trucks of clean water to vulnerable districts.
