Description:

Since 2011, Oxfam has provided assistance to nearly 600,000 people affected by the humanitarian crisis. In Al Hodeidah and Hajjah in Western Yemen, Oxfam has given cash to 400,000 people since 2011 to help them buy food and support their basic needs. Oxfam has been is working with 32 communities to help rebuild their livelihoods through cash for work schemes and scaling up social protection programmes. Oxfam responded to the 2014 fuel crisis with the distribution of water filters to 3,300 vulnerable households and a cash transfer to an additional 1,000 households in western Yemen. Since 2012 Oxfam has rehabilitated water systems in 41 rural communities in western Yemen, providing more than 125,000 vulnerable people with safe drinking water. In the north in Sa'ada governorate, where years of conflict have destroyed infrastructure and created significant access constraints, Oxfam working on repairing and installing water sources, and has reached 58,000 people. We have also delivered vital water and sanitation services to communities in Aden and Abyan in the south. Together with partners, Oxfam is working to empower women economically, socially, and politically to have a say in decision making at all levels. Planning for the longer term, Oxfam is piloting three solar pump drinking water systems, reaching more than 20,000 people in three communities. In the current conflict Oxfam has already distributed cash to more 4,000 households (about 28,000 people) to help them buy basic necessities. Oxfam has also delivered water containers and filters to the Hodeidah area and is planning on delivering blankets and tents in the coming weeks. Oxfam is also sending in trucks of clean water to vulnerable districts in Hodeidah. Oxfam plans to provide help to 80,000 people in the coming weeks, and build up to a total of about 1 million people, as access improves.
