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.
Saleh al-Samad, the acting head of the Houthi administration in northern Yemen, was killed last week in a Saudi-led coalition air raid. A rebel-run TV channel confirmed his death on Monday.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres asked donors for $2.6 billion in humanitarian aid for war-torn Yemen. He called for a "political solution" to truly end the suffering of the Yemeni people.
When civil war broke out in Somalia, Ali Hassan Suufi and his wife fled to Yemen. But after the Yemeni Civil War began they returned to their home country, which had been ravaged by terror and poverty.
The war-torn country is experiencing the worst cholera epidemic the world has seen in a decade according to the Red Cross. Yet cholera is not the only problem Yemenis face, they also lack food, water, medicine and fuel.
