UN: Aid programs might be ceased in Houthis-held areas

Alsahwa Net- The UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen Lise Grande said on Tuesday that some of the UN humanitarian aid programs might be suspended in the Houthis-held areas due to difficulties the UN aid organizations face in the rebels-controlled areas.

This came during a meeting Grande had with the Yemen Prime Minister, Maeen Abdulmalik in the temporary capital Aden on Tuesday 2nd July 2019. The two officials discussed challenges UN humanitarian aid agencies encounter in the Houthis-held areas.

The UN World Food Program (WFP) already suspended on 20 June 2019 a food aid project in Sana’a following large-scale looting of food aids by Houthis officials.

The WFP decision affects vulnerable people in need to food assistance, the state-run Saba News Agency reported on Tuesday. Grande affirmed that some UN aid programs to be ceased in the Houthis-held areas if problems remained unsolved.

For his part, the Prime Minster, Abdulmalik demanded that the UN must be outspoken to disclose challenges face humanitarian work in Yemen and to name the Houthis as a party that impedes aid delivery that eventually led to suspension of some aid projects in militia-held areas.

 He expressed his concerns over ceasing more similar aid projects as a result of no response by the Houthis towards “diversion of food” from the neediest.
