WFP: Yemen has only three months of food stored inside the country

Executive Director of the World Food Programme Ertharin Cousin said that Yemen only has about three months of food stored inside the country.

 

We do not have enough food to support the scale-up that is required to ensure that we can avoid a famine.”

 

She said that Yemen urgently needs $460 million in funding to prevent the famine, pointing out that Western and other governments could provide fairly easily if there were any willingness to do so.

 

"But to date international donations to aid Yemen have lagged pitifully behind the needs of the population. The larger U.N. appeal for aid continues to be shamefully underfunded" she added.

"The governments that bear a large share of responsibility for creating these horrific conditions should be the first to provide the needed funding, but there is virtually no pressure on them to do so. Almost the entire world is responding to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis with a shrug".
