Severe acute malnutrition cases killed over 85 000 children under four years old in Yemen over the last three years.

It is a man-made hunger. The war which has started three years ago at Hodeidah port blocked access for any humanitarian aid services directly through the country. The U.N ( united nations ) may take another path in order to be able to send aid. The amount of time to reach the war zone will triple.There is no access to stocks grain from WFP ( World Food Programme).

The Yemenis children are undernourished.They suffer of severe acute malnutrition.That mean they have a very low weight for their height based on World health Organization. Their organs function slow down and may stop. They are more disposed to get infection. Some are too weak to even cry.Their eyes are bulging and their skin are emaciated.They suffer all the way to death.

From 384 cases being treated in January, an additional 1,319 more came in over the next six months, according to local health records around Aslam. Some war zone might not receive any aid at all -including the poorest country Aslam-. Aslam’s main health center has no pediatricians, no electricity, no oxygen cylinders.We compared it to Somalia because of the famines that encounter.

Humanitarian aid organization have criterias that gives priority to families that either had a roof to stay or the one that doesn’t only if they don’t have someone who still work to gain food. That is why some families issue to eat leaves boiled in an acid  to get over starving.

According to a report a mother wasn’t able to feed her 7 -month-old girl named Zahra  because of her own undernourishment. She had been unable to buy milk for her baby since birth.

Food importation dropped 55,000 metric tons a month the equivalent of 55 million kg .The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) secretary’s general’s Jan Egeland will took measures to restart Yemen economy and allow free access to food and aid.

Over 2 billions$ have been given to rescue the people.That amount mainly comes from  Sweden,Switzerland and UN : united Nations.

The war makes less food for millions Yemenis. Around 12 million people will die of hunger if famine continue. What I have seen in Yemen this week is the stuff of nightmares,of horror,of deprivation,of misery. “And–we all of humanity–have only ourselves to blame” ,  said Mr Beasley.

Yemen climate is very high.It is a tropical desert. In summer the temperature can hit 104 degree.This country is located in Arabian Peninsula in Asia . It includes seven countries.
