Today's children are tomorrow's men, so they lead a suitable and well-off life that enables them to reach this goal. On the contrary, children of Yemen cannot imagine this. This the fact because they are ill, sick, meager, miserable, severe acute malnourished. In addition, the mothers of such children suffer from the same problem. So, how can malnourished mothers feed their children and provide them with appropriate care.
Numerous reports revealed that if the war in Yemen continues to 2022, then about 500,000 Yemenis will die as a result of poor living conditions, disease, malnutrition, and lack of medicines and health supplies. These reports have shown that Yemen has, nowadays, gotten one of the largest numbers of people who are suffering from food insecurity in the world. 80% of the population of Yemen today (about 24 million people) are in urgent need of humanitarian aid, and that 16 million people in Yemen, or about half of the country's population, are suffering from acute malnutrition. Also, if the unfair blockade of the Yemeni ports continues and food supplies are disrupted that number will grow significantly
The effects of malnutrition and long-term food insecurity will emerge in today's children who will face mental and physical development problems in the near future. Many reports have revealed that there are 1.1 million pregnant women living in food poverty. If the current operations to improve the humanitarian situation in Yemen continue, it will take about 20 years for the Yemeni people 'level of food security to return to the pre-war level.
In this context, an estimated 3.2 million children and women in Yemen are severely malnourished, and 50% of all children suffer from permanent stunting. According to the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), approximately 7.4 million children in Yemen need humanitarian assistance, indicating a catastrophic humanitarian situation.
