A little boy plays with a tyre next to buildings damaged by airstrikes in Saada's Old Town in #Yemen. This neighbourhood once housed the city's oldest market, with thousands of vegetable, fruit, spice and fabric-sellers.⠀ The people of Yemen are facing the deadly combination of cholera, hunger and conflict every day. 7 million people are on the brink of starvation, 2.3 million children under age 5 are malnourished, and 2/3 of the population need humanitarian assistance and protection.
The #UnitedNations and partners are working to address the cholera outbreak and provide humanitarian assistance to fight famine in the country, but serious funding shortfalls remain.
