UNICEF: 11.3 million Yemeni Children in Need of Humanitarian Assistance
A UNICEF report released on Friday stated that 11.3 million children in Yemen are “in need of humanitarian assistance,” with the war still ongoing for the seventh consecutive year in the impoverished country.
The report said that “Yemen remains the world’s worst humanitarian crisis with 20.7 million people – 71 percent of the total population – in need of humanitarian assistance.”
The organization had stated earlier that 8.1 million Yemeni children are in need of emergency educational assistance due to the military conflict.
As many as 20.7 million Yemeni people or about 71% of the total population need humanitarian assistance.
UNICEF warned in July that the education of more than six million children in Yemen is at stake, with more than two million children currently completely deprived of education.
