The World Health Organization has affirmed due to cholera about 242 people are dead. This terrible sanitary condition is added to the problem regarding famine, which has caused other deaths in the last weeks. The warnings by WHO are alarming, even because the representative for Yemen, Zagaria, has said by the end of the year a quarter of a million people is supposed to get sick. Cholera is a contagious bacteria, which is spread through contaminated water and food. The danger of not helping yemeni people is due to impossibility of accessing to some parts of State as well, so it would be possible, number of disease cases is going to increase. Zagaria has also declared UN agencies are going to present and elaborate a cholera prevention plan in the following 48 hours.

In the lake Chad region (which includes part of Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon and Chad) over 2 million people are displaced. The area has been declared one of the most critic, because of the cholera, the poverty and the terroristic attacks which all together contribute to create one of the most severe and tragic humanitarian crise the world has ever witnessed. Out of the 17 million peopleliving in the Lale Chad Region, around 10 million are in need of food, water and shelter. The situation gets even more complex since the remoteness of the region make it challenging for the UN agencies to deliver the assistance. The area is also devasted by the impact of climate change, as the Lake waters are drying up and many people are no longer able to live with fishery. Four UN agencies (UNICEF, WFP, UNHCR and OCHA) have decided to invest together in the Ready to Respond Project to get the region better prepared for escalation of violence and potential new emergencies – while in parallel keep responding to immediate and urgent needs. Since 2014, the agencies keep responding to urgent needs: they  prepositioned relief items such as food, communication equipment and educational kits for children.
