In October 2022, the Humanitarian Access Relief Unit provided food baskets, shelter materials, and cash assistance to 2,056 needy families in the governorates of Taiz and Marib. This was supported by a number of donors with the aim of reducing the suffering of the needy in light of the increase in humanitarian needs and the deterioration of the economy and services in Yemen.
This emergency support was distributed to the teachers of the Owais Al-Qarni Educational Complex in Taiz City. Supported by the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, it targeted 255 families. The distributed materials included 25 kg of flour, 10 kg of rice, 5 kg of sugar, 1.8 liters of oil, 12 cans of legumes, 6 packets of triangle cheese ( 24 pieces each), 6 cans of tuna and 1 kilo of tahini.
With the support of “Kaaf” Humanitarian Fund, 783 displaced families benefited from food baskets consisting of 25 kg of flour, 10 kg of rice, 5 kg of sugar, 1.8 liters of oil and 12 cans of legumes in Marib. In addition, 1,000 families benefited from shelter materials, including blankets, sheets, women’s, men’s and children’s clothes, shoes and bags, supported by philanthropists in Italy. Moreover, 18 families benefited from cash assistance granted by Humanitarian Access.
There are 17,000,000 people who suffer from food insecurity as a result of the armed conflict that has lasted for more than seven years. Malnutrition rates among women and children in Yemen are among the highest in the world. According to the UN, about 23.4 million people in Yemen (i.e. more than two-thirds of the total population) need humanitarian assistance.
