400,000 starving Yemen children face risk of death

Three UN agencies have warned that hundreds of starving Yemeni children are facing the risk of death if assistance does not reach them soon.

In a joint statement, the WHO, UNICEF and WFP said thousands of innocent victims, including many children in Yemen will die if no humanitarian assistance reaches them soon.

They added: “More than 20 million people, including 10 million children are urgent need of humanitarian assistance,” noting that 400,000 children are facing the risk of death due to “acute malnutrition”.

Meanwhile, Save the Children said that 50,000 Yemeni children under 15 years old are dying due to sickness and lack of food.

Save the Children warned in a statement of the continuous deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the country, stressing that this would end the life of tens of thousands of children.

UN statistics have revealed that about seven million Yemenis are also facing imminent death due to starvation in Yemen.

For his part, the UN Secretary General António Guterres expressed his disappointment of the rejection of the Saudi-led coalition to response to the UN Security Council to lift the siege on Yemen, which is witnessing the worst humanitarian crisis due to the “stupid war”,
reports the Anadolu Agency.
