#Yemen Update; Thursday 8th MarchToday we met with officials at the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation to change our status from working in some parts of Yemen to be able to operate in all areas across the country. There was lots of paperwork and requests involved but in general the officials there were very helpful. After that we headed straight to an area close to the Southwest tip of Yemen known as Bab al-Mandab. However, there was one problem… we needed fuel. Now this has probably never been an issue for most of you before but here there's been a fuel crisis for months and the last two weeks have seen almost all fuel stores run dry.We eventually found the last fuel station in the city, paid double the usual price and filled up some extra containers just in case. Then we headed to an area where it was said that hundreds of families were living after having fled the conflict.After passing through tight security and many checkpoints on the road we arrived and were welcomed by one of the community leaders there who explained that the people there were displaced from cities like Dhubab, al-Khokha and al-Mokha (where the name for Mocha coffee comes from). Their houses were first attacked by land forces and then air strikes hit their towns. Until now they are still not able to return because soldiers are using their homes.During the assessment I asked what facilities there were for waste disposal to which the aswer was "we are literally living in a rubbish dump at the side of a school" there are only 3 toilets between 500 families!!! They don't have enough food, never mind basic services. Even though they have great needs, we want to at least make sure that we can return and give them basic food items until their homes become safe again and they can return. The prices of food in Yemen have gone up drastically recently and we want to provide as many vulnerable families as possible with essential food items Please give whatever you can. HRF are on the ground making sure that your support gets to where it is needed.www.justgiving.com/EmergencyYemen[SHARE]

***EMERGENCY SITUATION. I NEED YOU ALL TO HELP***We visited a hospital which was almost empty because they don't have any medication left. Basic medicines like anti-biotics, children's medicines, malaria tablets, injections for child birth and even rubber gloves and gel for the ultrasound machine have run out.Many people need treating there and the staff are there, but there is no medicine!!!Give what you can and share this post so we can raise as much as possible to give emergency supplies to the hospital and make sure that mothers giving birth, ill children and those who can't afford medicines will not be turned away with their lives at risk.www.justgiving.com/EmergencyYemen— Share this post so we can get medical supplies ASAP —
