The World Food Programme (WFP), the UN’s emergency food relief agency, confirmed on Friday in a statement that it has started a "partial suspension" of aid to areas of Yemen controlled by Houthi opposition forces, including the capital, Sana’a.
Thousands of families in Yemen’s war-torn Hudaydah Governorate have received their first aid deliveries in more than six months, the World Food Programme (WFP) said on Tuesday. In an interview with Daniel Johnson from UN News, the agency’s Hervé Verhoosel explains who the aid will help and why ongoing access is urgently needed.
Food insecurity has become a major issue in Gaza and the West Bank, not because food is hard to find, but because hard-pressed families cannot afford to buy it, according to Stephen Kearney, the World Food Programme’s (WFP) Representative and WFP Country Director in Palestine. Mr. Kearney spoke with UN News’s Arabic chief, Reem Abaza.
