UNPUBLISHED LETTER SENT TO FIVE NEWS OUTLETS IN IRELAND ON 11 MARCH, NOW ISSUED AS A PR
people in Yemen are starving to death. They are dying in hospitals, homes and on the roadsides fleeing to safety. Many severely undernourished children who make it to the safety of the overcrowded Hodeidah Hospital on the Red Sea coast still die as their bodies are so weakened with starvation. 400,000 Yemini children are at risk of dying according to the director of the UN World Food Programme. 11 million children need aid in the world’s worst humanitarian disaster. The UN estimates that 50% of health-care facilities have shut down in a conflict that has displaced more than 3.6 million people, over 80% of which are women and children. The Coronavirus pandemic runs rampant among such dysfunctionality.
