Yemen cholera worst on record & numbers still rising

Massive aid effort and cease-fire needed as rainy season approaches.

The number of people with cholera in Yemen is now the largest ever recorded in any country in a single year, Oxfam said today. At over 350,000 suspected cholera cases in just three months since the outbreak started, it is now already the largest number of cases in a year, topping the previous annual record of 340,311 in Haiti in 2011. 

Oxfam reaction to proposed ceasefire in Aleppo

In response to the proposed 48 hour ceasefire in Aleppo, Andy Baker, Oxfam's Syria Crisis Response manager said: “While the proposed ceasefire is welcome it must not be a one-off.  Regular, sustained pauses in the conflict are necessary to deal with the scale of the suffering, devastation and destruction in the city.”
