Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor sounds alarm over humanitarian crisis in Yemen

She first fled with her husband’s family but they became abusive, so she left and fled to Mokha alone with her daughters. She said at the time she was so hungry that she ate an onion she found on the ground. It made her sick. “I could not find anything to eat or to feed my children. I cannot express that feeling of hunger. I just cried for my children.” Hayat now lives in a very basic IDP settle in Mokha. A small makeshift hut home, there is no water in the area. The dust and wind on the coast are brutal. Hayat receives WFP food assistance. She said she eats nothing else. She can’t afford even a few vegetables. WFP food assistance provides the staples - flour for bread, pulses for a stew, and oil, sugar and saflt. But it’s not enough on its own. Children: Karima, 7, Bagdhad, 4, Fatooma, 3

The Yemeni people are suffering a difficult humanitarian crisis that affects all aspects of their lives as a result of the ongoing war, the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor said on Monday.

In a tweet, the Monitor said that “the majority of Yemenis do not have access to basic services and struggle daily to not slip into the threat of starvation that threatens them all the time.”

On March 17, the United Nations announced that it had received financial pledges from 36 donors worth $1.3 billion for its humanitarian plan in Yemen. The United Nations was however originally seeking to get $4.27 billion worth of aid to a total of 17.3 million Yemenis.

By the end of 2021, the war had killed 377,000 people and cost Yemen’s economy nearly $126 billion, according to the United Nations.

Most of the country’s population, numbering about 30 million, has become dependent on aid, in one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world.
