Internal conflicts and severe drought have left almost 11 million people in Yemen struggling to feed their families.
One million children under five are acutely malnourished and in rural areas, 66% of people have no access to safe water or basic sanitation.
For some, the circumstances have become so bad that they have had to leave behind their homes in search of safety from the waves of violence or simply for a stable source of food.
Today nearly half a million Yemenis have left their homes. There are also over 200,000 refugees in Yemen, most of whom have also left their homes in search of stability.
The majority of displaced people live in makeshift camps, which puts them at risk of contracting cholera, measles, and lung infections due to poor hygiene, overcrowding and unclean water supplies.
With the poor rainfall in late 2012, agricultural production looks likely to struggle even more this year; WFP estimates that production will be reduced by 8% in 2013. This is likely to drive the food prices up and make malnourished people even more food insecure.
