Besides the hunger and the expanding cholera epidemic Yemen suffers from the Saudi blockade.

We often call it a “forgotten crisis”, but it is an unforgettable day-to-day struggle to survive for the people of Yemen. In the poorest Arab country, the world’s largest humanitarian crisis is currently taking place: 70 percent of the population is dependent on emergency aid, two million children are acutely under-nourished – yet there is not enough support for local people. Yemenis feel abandoned by the international community.
Hunger – a six letter word describes the inhuman situation for more than 18 million people in Yemen. Hunger means not knowing when they will have their next meal, waiting in line for food vouchers, having to decide, if you can afford medical aid for one child or food for your other child. Decisions, which are neither easy to make nor should any one face.
