Yemen war: More than eight million on verge of starvation

It is estimated almost 18 million people lack access to good, nutritious food and 8.4 million are on verge of famine, as they simply do not know where their next meal is coming from.

The United Nations has described the conflict in Yemen as one of “the worst humanitarian disasters in modern times”.

The civil war has left millions struggling to afford basic goods.

It is estimated that 8.4 million Yemenis are on the verge of starvation, with many more eating just one small meal a day.
