What we are doing
Despite access restrictions, Action Against Hunger reached more than 300,000 people in 2017.
We continue to:
- Deliver nutrition and health programmes
- Provide support for acutely malnourished children under five and their mothers
- Support food security and livelihoods by distributing food, money or coupons
- Promote and distribute hygiene kits
- Rehabilitate water points and latrines
- Deliver training to health workers
Finally, nearly 30,000 suspected cases of cholera were treated by Action Against Hunger-supported hospitals in an area of conflict near the town of Hodeidah.
“The humanitarian situation in Yemen is devastating for millions of families. We are treating malnourished children who are in a more severe condition and are older than those we treated prior to the conflict - this demonstrates the seriousness of the crisis.”
Jean-Michel Grand, Executive Director, Action Against Hunger
"Civilians are the first to suffer from the lack of respect for the fundamental rules of international humanitarian law: indiscriminate bombing and airstrikes, ceasefire ignorance, schools and health facilities being occupied by armed groups, the destruction of civilian infrastructure." - Lucile Grosjean, Advocacy Manager, Action Against Hunger in France
