Yemen: Two thirds of people no access to fresh water
Clean drinking water is a growing problem in the war-torn Yemen.
Due to the ongoing bombardments and fighting, again millions of people have been cut from the basic needs of fresh water.
Oxfam warns: “They are forced to drink unsafe water, causing the outbreak of various diseases.”
The past seven weeks, the ongoing struggle ensured that many water systems have been disabled. Another three million people in Yemen, have no access to clean drinking water. Before the latest outbreak of violence, thirteen million others faced urgent problem. Together, Oxfam calculated, nearly two thirds of the population is struggling with water.
40 percent of the drinking water systems that Oxfam maintained in the areas around Al Hajjah and Hodeidah in the west of Yemen, have been disabled.
