18 million Yemenis have no access to drinking water

18 million Yemenis have no access to drinking water

 

The five-year Saudi war on Yemen has killed more than 70,000 people and pushed millions to the brink of famine in what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Last month, a local non-government organization said even the water supply in Yemen had been "weaponized", referring to the country's unclean water, which breeds cholera, according to Al Jazeera.

There are 18 million Yemenis with no access to drinking water.

In the past years, the shortage of drinking water triggered a cholera outbreak that impacted 1.2 million people, making the epidemic the largest in history.

According to the Yemen Data Project, a Saudi-led coalition waging war on the Arab country has carried out 20,000 air attacks, one-third of which were on non-military sites, including hospitals and schools.

At malnutrition prevention centers across the country, dozens of people queue every day for hours for a medical examination and a pack of soy.

"Today, my daughter is constantly vomiting. I brought her here hoping someone would see her. I don't know if it is cholera or an infection," a Yemeni citizen said.

"We are very poor. Before the war, I worked in Saudi Arabia. Today, I have no job, house nor the possibility of moving. Our situation is disastrous, we have only God's help," said the father of 11 children.

Ahmed said they do not have nutritious food to give the children. "They eat just flour every day. Sometimes they don't get vegetables or fruit or milk for weeks."

The thing that makes him suffer the most, he said, is feeling like a beggar. "The war took away my dignity."

A child under age of five dies every 12 minutes in Yemen: UN

 

A child under the age of five dies every 12 minutes in Yemen due to the humanitarian crisis caused by the US-Saudi aggression, Achim Steiner, the representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Yemen, said Wednesday.

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): A child under the age of five dies every 12 minutes in Yemen due to the humanitarian crisis caused by the US-Saudi aggression, Achim Steiner, the representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Yemen, said Wednesday.

"A child under 5 years of age dies every 12 minutes in Yemen, mostly as a result of lack of water, basic nutrition, health care and medicines due to the conflict," Steiner said in a tweet.

Yemen is experiencing the largest humanitarian crisis in the world because of the US-Saudi aggression against Yemen for nearly five years.

Red Cross reports new outbreak of dengue fever in Yemen

https://en.abna24.com/news//red-cross-reports-new-outbreak-of-dengue-fever-in-yemen_989625.html

November 27, 2019 - 10:04 AM News Code : 989625 Source : AlmasirahLink:    

The International Committee of the Red Cross reported a new outbreak of dengue fever in war-torn Yemen on Monday, with thousands of cases reported and several dozen deaths.

More than 3,500 cases of dengue have been reported in Taiz, Mardini said. And in Hodeida, where the country’s main port is located, the ICRC heard that 50 people died in late October and early November of dengue fever and malaria, and the local head office reported the number of people infected with dengue fever is 2,000, and close to 3,000 have malaria. “So you can imagine, with the violence and the fighting, it is a big challenge to control this epidemic,” Mardini said.
 

As of Thursday, ECHO said, 7,970 cases of dengue fever were reported in the governorate. It said 3,215 were confirmed and 103 patients were under observation in government hospitals. Mardini said dengue and malaria are endemic in Yemen though in recent years their prevalence had “been extremely low.” But now, because of the weakness of the country’s health system and problems with its water supplies and sanitation, malaria and dengue are appearing again, he said.

How funny is it people believe the UN and Western media and human rights organisations when it is convenient for them but not when it doesn't support their views.

Sad that you forget that its not just the UN reporting whats going on in Yemen.

Check it out. How the pro-capitalist allies and their minions are at a comprehensive loss for words over Yemen while they cry about Khomeini instead. Now their Shianesses get numb.

So sad.

No, I am exposing hypocrisy. I, too, am also skeptical of "UN reports" and Western human rights organisations, simply because their reporting in and of itself does not establish worthy enough evidence and certainly not yaqeen. I am exposing the hypocrisy of certain people who believe in the UN sometimes and disbelieve in it in other times, unlike me who is skeptical altogether.

So much hysteria. Yemen reporting is mostly done by non-western sources. Its very well known that west tries hard to suppress their destruction of Yemen.

Amnesty: Saudi war on Yemen taking heavy toll on disabled

https://en.abna24.com/news//amnesty-Saudi-war-on-yemen-taking-heavy-toll-on-disabled_991109.html

Amnesty: Saudi war on Yemen taking heavy toll on disabled

 

The ongoing Saudi war on Yemen has exacted an enormous toll on people with disabilities, who find themselves on the margins of society and excluded from badly needed humanitarian assistance, Amnesty International said in a report released Tuesday.

The 50-page report by the London-based global rights group shines a light on the inadequate or nonexistent support for disabled Yemenis — a population “most at risk and most marginalized” in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, AP reported.

“We understand of course the extent of which the humanitarian response in Yemen has been overstretched,” said Rawya Rageh, Senior Crisis Advisor at Amnesty International. “But this is not just about access to funds. What we are calling for is a change in perspective, a change in approach, that the rights of people with disabilities are addressed at the outset of the crisis.”

Furthermore, sudden outbreaks of violence have trapped disabled people and separated them from their families, Amnesty found. Many disabled Yemenis are forced to flee their homes without wheelchairs or crutches, carried in the arms of relatives.

Jalila al-Saleh Ali recounted to Amnesty how she abandoned her mentally ill husband at home while sprinting away from gunfire in the city of Taiz, holding her 16-year-old handicapped son.

Oncology center:

Number of Yemeni patients with cancer, especially children increases due to aggression

Number of Yemeni patients with cancer, especially children increases due to aggression

 

Director of medical supply at the Yemen's National Oncology Center, Dr.. Ali Al-Mansour, confirmed that the number of cancer patients, especially children, is increasing due to the US-Saudi aggression and the siege, blaming the United Nations for these deaths.

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): 
Al-Mansour said in a statement to Almasirah network that the center is dispensing chemical drugs to many centers in the governorates, noting that the center was unable to cover its needs and transporting drugs at a certain temperature to ensure their effectiveness.

He added that the number of deaths of children with cancer is increasing, blaming the United Nations for these deaths, calling on it to put pressure on aggression.

For his part, Director of the Department of Pediatric oncology at the center, Dr.. Hamoud Haddish, told Almasirah that the center receives in its departments a large number of new and old cases. Most cases come in advanced stages of cancer as a result of the country conditions and the inability of their families to reach the center. He added that some cases die before even reaching the center.

He confirmed that the siege made many families suffer from difficulty in obtaining medicines that the center does not have. He noted that the department suffers from an acute shortage of medicines, forcing families to search for them effortlessly.

The director of the pediatric department stressed that the international community should recognize the suffering of patients, their families and their health centers unless the coming disaster is great.

Both Houthis and Saudi should stop the war. The death of 80k children are happening because each one are fighting for never ending war  that will not lead to anything but death. Both side have almost unlimited  amount of resource for war which will not stop.   They should negotiate instead of shredding more blood.

Factbox: UN aid programs in Yemen at risk of going broke

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): of some 20 million Yemenis who are food insecure, nearly 10 million are acutely food insecure.

More than 3.6 million Yemenis have been displaced by conflict. Disease is rife and the United Nations says the health system has effectively collapsed.

Program reductions had already started in some areas, UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, Lise Grande, told Reuters:

The World Food Program, which feeds more than 12 million Yemenis a month, in April halved rations in northern areas. It needs funding for existing operations and to ramp back up operations in the north.
One week before the first COVID-19 case was announced in Yemen on April 10, the World Health Organization was forced to suspend payments to 10,000 health workers.
Programs for pregnant and lactating women are being shut in 140 healthcare facilities.
Immunization programs are being suspended.
Fifty-one primary healthcare clinics have closed.
Depending on the amount of money raised, Grande said more cuts or closures could follow:

Basic health services provided at 189 hospitals and 200 primary healthcare units could be lost.
Some 6.5 million people including those in areas with cholera could lose water and sanitation services.
Nutrition programs for 2 million malnourished children would have to be shut.

Saudi king pigged out while 10 million Yemenis in critical food shortages

Quote

In a statement on Friday, the UN’s World Food Program (WFP) said it in urgent need of $737 million to end of the current year to keep its humanitarian aid program running in the war-ravaged country.

The UN has already said that Yemen struggles with the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

“The humanitarian situation is deteriorating at an alarming rate, pushing people to the edge,” said Elisabeth Byrs, the WFP spokeswoman in a virtual briefing in Geneva, Switzerland.

    “We must act now. If we wait for famine to be declared, it will already be too late as people will already be dying,” she stressed, adding that the famine warning signs were already present.

    “Yemen is facing a crisis on multiple fronts. Imports have declined, food prices are soaring, the riyal is in freefall, and foreign currency reserves are nearing total depletion,” Byrs added.

According to the WFP official, more than 20 million Yemenis are food insecure in the Arab country, of which some 13 million people receive humanitarian food assistance.

Furthermore, two million children, plus a million pregnant or breastfeeding women, are in need of treatment for acute malnutrition, Byrs said.

She also said that her respective organization’s distributions of aid were down to once every other month in Yemen’s north, expressing hope that the UN agency would not have to do the same elsewhere.

The COVID-19 pandemic is also raging unchecked in the war-torn country.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Minister of Water and Environment of Yemen in the National Salvation Government Nabil al-Wazir on Sunday stressed the importance of redoubling efforts to provide clean drinking water for citizens.

This came during a meeting via video technology chaired by al-Wazir and included WASH Officer in UNICEF, the organization's water experts, and Cluster's officials.

The Minister of Water stressed the need to exploit the time factor to push the water projects better and provide fuel for pumping water and operating sanitation stations in all provinces.

Al-Wazir noted to the importance of the partnership between the Ministry and UNICEF, and the existing coordination to provide citizens' water needs at the practical level, especially in light of the aggression and blockade that Yemen is exposed to, which has affected on the water sector and the environment.

Ansarullah slams awarding 2020 Nobel Peace Prize to World Food Programme

Ansarullah slams awarding 2020 Nobel Peace Prize to World Food Programme

 

Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement has censured the World Food Program (WFP) over failing to stop famine in the war-ravaged country, where the current level of hunger is unprecedented and millions of people are suffering severe hardship.


Talaat al-Sharjabi, a spokesman for the movement, told AFP news agency on Friday that the WFP had “largely failed in the biggest task for which it was chosen (for the Nobel Peace Prize), and that is combating hunger.”

“A large number of people suffer from malnutrition... and there is also a failure on the WFP's part to be neutral in terms of humanitarian aid distribution,” he said.

Sharjabi’s remarks came shortly after the WFP won the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize for what was described as its efforts to combat hunger and food insecurity around the globe.

The announcement was made in Oslo by Berit Reiss-Andersen, the chair of the Nobel Committee.

The Nobel Committee said the coronavirus pandemic has worsened a hunger crisis faced by millions of people around the world and called on governments to ensure that WFP and other aid organizations receive the financial support necessary to feed them.

The United Nations has already painted a bleak picture of the hunger crisis gripping Yemen, calling it the “world's worst humanitarian crisis.”

Saudi-led aggression caused largest human tragedy for Yemeni children - says Health ministry

Quote

On the International Children’s Day, the Ministry of Health released a statement that 2,643 children were killed by direct air strikes and 4,205 were injured, noting that this is a testament to the criminality of the enemy.

“The suffocating siege on Yemen kills hundreds of thousands of children,” the statement noted. “While millions are waiting for the same fate.”

The statement pointed out that nearly 2 million children under the age of five are malnourished, including 400,000 critically ill children and 12,000 children who have died.

The Ministry of Health held the US-Saudi coalition responsible from a legal, humanitarian and moral standpoint, calling on the whole world to take a serious stand to stop this aggression and lift the blockade.
