Yemen: hunger relief mission remains woefully underfunded

Published on 16 December 2010

In November the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and the government of Yemen launched an emergency mission to help families suffering from hunger. This mission provided 110,000 Yemeni families (800,000 people) with a two-month ration of wheat flour. Many more families in need did not receive a ration because of low funding from the international community. The White House said earlier this year that humanitarian aid for Yemen is "woefully underfunded."
