A malnourished Yemeni child receives treatment at a hospital in the capital Sanaa. The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen says it will allow aid deliveries to the rebel-held port of Hudaydah and Sanaa airport, after urgent UN appeals. More than 20 million people, including 11 million children, are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance, according to the UN agencies.
Some 17 million people do not know where their next meal is coming from and 7 million are totally dependent on food assistance. Severe acute malnutrition is threatening the lives of almost 400,000 children. At least 14.8 million are without basic healthcare and the world's largest cholera outbreak has resulted in more than 913,000 suspected cases and 2,196 deaths. PHOTO: MOHAMMED HUWAIS/AFP
