WFP Yemen Situation Report #4, April 2022


In Numbers:

17.4 million people food insecure

31,000 people in famine-like conditions

3.5 million people acutely malnourished

10.9 million people assisted by WFP in April


• The 02 April truce continued to broadly hold in April, despite allegations of ceasefire violations from both sides. No airstrikes were recorded in Yemen in April, the longest pause in airstrikes seen since February 2015.

• Fuel availability improved significantly in April following the truce and the subsequent arrival of fuel vessels to Al Hodeidah port, alleviating delays in dispatches and deliveries of WFP food and nutrition commodities.

• The 2022 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) was released on 30 April, outlining a plan to assist 17.3 million people at a cost of US$ 4.27 billion. WFP’s 2022 funding requirement accounts for 43 percent of the full HRP requirement.
