U.N. Says 8 Million Yemenis Could Lose All Humanitarian Aid Next Month Due to Funding Shortages

HeadlineFeb 17, 2022

The U.N. is warning around two-thirds of aid programs in Yemen had to be slashed or closed last month and that continued lack of funding could mean 8 million Yemenis will lose all humanitarian assistance by next month. Meanwhile, new fronts have opened in the Saudi-led, U.S.-backed war that has led to the world’s worst humanitarian disaster. Over 650 civilians were killed in January alone, the highest recorded death toll in at least three years.
