It is believed that the 44% of the population in Yemen, around 10 million of people, are malnourished and five million require immediate medical attention. The humanitarian workers call this “a silent tragedy.”
The internal political conflicts have caught the attention of international donors. This week Arab countries and Western nations promised to supply the nation with a budget of $4,000 millions.
This money will be employed to “help and reach safety, stability and prosperity in front of the extreme threats and terrorism,” according the statements of the foreign minister of Saudi Arabia, Saud al-Faisal.
The request of Yemen to the United Nations has received a response below the expected, something that the White House has qualified as “deplorable.” (AV)
