ICRC: 19 million Yemenis are considered food insecure

ICRC: 19 million Yemenis are considered food insecure

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) stressed Friday Yemen’s need for an “urgent political solution to end the suffering” caused by the US-Saudi aggression that has been lasting for eight years.

“Two out of three Yemenis are considered food insecure, that’s about 19 million people,” said Martin Schweib, Director of Operations at the International Committee of the Red Cross, on Twitter, during his visit to Yemen.

“Even more of them lack access to basic health care, despite all of this, Yemen is too often out of the spotlight”. He stressed the need to ensure that the support received from donors and partners continues to be able to continue their work, as he claimed.

The United Nations continues to exploit the war on Yemen by collecting donations in the name of saving the Yemeni people.

The organizations of the United Nations issue every now and then many reports about the extent of the bad humanitarian situation in Yemen, reporting on malnutrition among children and pregnant mothers in order to collect financial donations.

The organizations do not talk about the effects of the war imposed on Yemen over the past eight years. Rather, they worked to mislead the international community by talking about a “civil conflict” away from the existence of a large international coalition waging a war on Yemenis.

Meeting the humanitarian needs of citizens and reporting on record levels on child malnutrition and the threat of famine in Yemen, as a result of what it describes as conflict, was the most common slogan promoted by the UN to obtain funds.

Observers said that the humanitarian aid donated by donor countries to Yemen is not a solution, stressing that the best solution is to stop the war on Yemen. They also indicated that the flow of financial aid from donor countries through organizations or the pro-aggression government has not changed anything over the past years.

Many international reports have confirmed that the organizations spend nearly 70% of the financial grants provided as aid to the Yemeni people on their operating expenses, while a report of the United Nations experts accused the pro-aggression government of corruption and money laundering.
