The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs released on its web page a video on the nutritional needs of Yemeni minors, the sector most affected by the war that has been raging in the country for the last eight years.
The NGO Save The Children denounced last week the serious problems in education due to the conflict.
More than 2.4 million children in the country do not go to school and at least a third of the educational centers were destroyed by the war, it stressed.
At the end of August, Adele Khodr, regional representative of the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef), revealed that almost 11,000 children were killed or injured due to the conflict.
On her Twitter account, the Unicef regional director for the Middle East and North Africa called on all parties to the conflict to protect minors and destroy the hundreds of mines planted throughout the country.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) recently stated that more than 20 million Yemenis out of a population of 31 million lack access to basic medical care and 16.2 million are threatened by a lack of food.
Barely 51% of health facilities are in service after nearly eight years of war, making medical care a luxury, that institution lamented.
The war began in 2014, when rebels rallied and occupied large areas of the country, including its capital, Sanaa.
