More than 1,000 people have died because of the bacterial infection Cholera in Yemen. People there not only suffer from epidemics, but from an ongoing civil war, attacks and famine.
The humanitarian leader said the cholera outbreak and food security in the war-torn nation will continue to worsen. There is no sign of compromise from the warring factions.
The UN has said 5 million people are at risk, and thousands have already begun streaming into the capital in search of food. Aid efforts are being hampered by a lack of international response and conflict on the ground.
Civil war and geopolitical rivalries have brought Yemen to the brink of collapse two years since a Saudi-led intervention against Houthi rebels. With famine looming, all signs point to the situation getting worse.
Millions of people are at risk of starvation in Yemen. The UN is asking for financial support to provide for nearly 10 million people in need of assistance.
