The UN has warned that severe food shortages across Yemen amid relentless Saudi attacks, has bought the war torn country “one step” closer to famine.
John Ging, director of operations at the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), said that over 10 million Yemenis need basic healthcare and over 7.6 million “are severely food insecure”

“So it’s a very fragile situation, and it’s a huge number of people that are in that status,” Ging, who just returned from Yemen, told a news conference.
“The nutrition situation in Yemen is also very acute,” Ging said, adding, “From January to April this year, over 56,000 children were found to be suffering from severe acute malnutrition.”
Yemen has a population of around 27.5 million and Ging said almost 180,000 children are suffering from severe acute malnutrition, but the UN has only been able to reach 32 percent of them.
The UN official said there has been “a shocking fall off” in support from the international donors over the last few months for the millions of Yemenis who need food, clean water and basic healthcare.
Ging said the UN appeal for USD 1.8 billion to help more than 13 million Yemenis this year has been just 16 percent funded.
He urged the international community not to forget Yemenis who have been subjected to a Saudi military aggression since March 26, 2015.
Ging said the United States, United Kingdom, European Commission and Japan had contributed to the 2016 appeal.
He visited the Yemeni northwestern city of Amran and viewed the devastating impact and “terrible consequences” of Saudi airstrikes, including on a cement factory where 1,500 people lost their jobs, as well as flooding which caused many homes to collapse.
The UN official said more than 300,000 people have been displaced in the impoverished Amran Governorate, compounding the humanitarian problems.
The Saudi strikes on Yemen were launched in an attempt to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to Saudi-backed former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
