Yemen on brink of
'world's worst famine in 100 years'
Yemen could be facing the worst famine in 100 years if airstrikes are not halted, the UN has warned. 💔
Yemen has been torn apart by conflict. More than 10,000 people have died - half of them civilians.
Yemen is the poorest country in the Middle East, torn apart by conflict and gripped by hunger. Almost half the country's residents are malnourished and have no access to clean water. Deadly clashes and air strikes have killed and injured thousands of people. Millions more have been forced to leave their homes and are struggling to find food, water and essential medical supplies.
With your Support One Nation will be providing food packs, water and also medical aid to families in Taiz, Al Hudaydah, Aden, Marib and Sana.
If war continues, famine could engulf the country in the next three months, with 12 to 13 million civilians at risk of starvation, according to Lise Grande, the agency’s humanitarian coordinator for Yemen.
She told the BBC: “I think many of us felt as we went into the 21st century that it was unthinkable that we could see a famine like we saw in Ethiopia, that we saw in Bengal, that we saw in parts of the Soviet Union – that was just unacceptable
Almost 500,000 infected with cholera and counting. Basic health care and food are not available. Hospital staff not paid their salaries in well over a year!I need your help to make a little difference. Please share with your family and friends!
