Yemen on verge of famine as millions cannot access aid
October 2, 2018 | Middle East | No Comments|
About one million people in northern Yemen are living in makeshift camps on the verge of famine.
They’re in a Houthi-controlled area that the Saudi-Emirati coalition has been attacking and that’s making it difficult for aid to reach camps. Without a ceasefire and end to the attacks, aid organisations cannot bring in the amount of food necessary for the displaced Yemenis to survive the conflict.
