Hunger is increasing in Yemen due to the ongoing conflict and other factors, which has prompted a greater number of the neediest groups to adopt harsh strategies in reducing food consumption and relying mainly on relief aid amid the widening poverty and unemployment gap. This is why the support of the Yemeni people is now more important than ever.

The HUMAN ACCESS Relief Unit strives to meet the urgent food needs of vulnerable groups and strengthen their resilience. In order to achieve this mission, the unit carried out, during last January, various humanitarian activities that greatly contributed to alleviating the impact of successive crises on 500 individuals and 2,220 displaced and affected families in Marib Governorate.

In this regard, it distributed food baskets consisting of flour, sugar, rice, cooking oil, legumes, dates and pasta, targeting 250 families, with funding from the WEFA organization.

To expand access to food, the Relief Unit also delivered 500 hot meals comprising rice and poultry meat to 500 war-torn people, funded by the Turkish Fatih Organization.

As part of the HUMAN ACCESS Relief Unit, food aid was not the only intervention offered, as hygiene kits were distributed to 170 families, and 300 water trucks were supplied, each of which held 6,000 liters, in response to the need for safe water and hygiene services among 18,000 displaced and affected families with the support of WEFA organization.

Due to the lack of income sources, sharp rise in commodities prices, and inability of many vulnerable families, particularly those who are displaced, to meet their most basic needs, such as food, water, and hygiene supplies, humanitarian interventions are of crucial importance. Consequently, they are prone to diseases and epidemics, which threatens their lives.
