star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Development is working to improve safeguarding standards across the aid sector. We have recently written to all of our partners to remind them of their responsibility to provide their own mechanisms for reporting and investigating suspicions and/or allegations of sexual violence. Wherever these relate to a DFID programme we also expect that our partners report those to us in a timely manner. DFID’s specialist team will then provide oversight of the investigatory response to ensure it meets our standards, providing dedicated support as required.</p><p> </p><p>We urge all survivors of sexual violence in South Sudan, including aid workers, to report the harm committed against them.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>On World Food Day this year, the UK announced a package of £96.5 million to help UNICEF continue tackle malnutrition in Yemen over the coming three years. This package will screen 2.2 million children under the age of five for malnutrition and provide urgent treatment for 70,000 of the most vulnerable children.</p><p>The recent increase in military activity in and around Hodeidah has had a relatively limited impact on this programme so far, as the programme’s activities are implemented countrywide, not exclusively in Hodeidah. The continued flow of goods through and onwards from Hodeidah port, however, will be critical to ensure that humanitarian supplies can reach those in need.</p><p>In Hodeidah city, stocks of supplies including nutrition, and fuel are still available thanks to the pre-positioning by UNICEF and its partners. Efforts are now focused on scaling up lifesaving activities within the humanitarian response.</p> more like this
