UK announces uplift of aid funding for feeding hungry in Yemen
[15/05/2024 05:37]
LONDON - SABA
The United Kingdom announced on Wednesday it has ramped up aid funding to help feed over 850,000 people in Yemen.

A statement from the UK's Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office has said the £139 million commitment, delivered through partners such as WFP, UNICEF, and other organisations, will help save lives in Yemen by supporting the delivery of vital services.

The statement said that as examples, the UK will provide cash transfers which will help to feed up to 864,000 people and support 500 health facilities with the medicines, vaccines and nutritional supplements they need to treat 700,000 severely malnourished children.

The statement indicated that the Yemeni people are suffering one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises, with over half the population in need of humanitarian assistance, as its 9-year conflict drags on.

It also said the Houthi’s actions have aggravated this humanitarian crisis through blocking aid from reaching those who need it in northern Yemen and attacking commercial shipping in the Red Sea which risks pushing up the price of vital supplies.
