The World Health Organisation (WHO) has affirmed that half of Yemen’s children are suffering from acute malnutrition due to food insecurity.
The WHO said on Twitter that food insecurity and acute malnutrition are a source of grave concern in Yemen.
“One out of every two children is expected to suffer from severe acute malnutrition in Yemen as a result of the aggression.”
The WHO went on to say: “In order to reduce the rate of missed treatment and improve the nutritional status of mothers, the organisation and the Famine Relief Fund has provided a balanced diet to 434 mothers, accompanying malnourished children.”
The WHO added that it would work with the Famine Relief Fund to provide free life-saving nutrition services in 92 therapeutic feeding centres.
