Yemen at War: Lifesaving aid blocked by airstrikes

March 27, 2015

The Saudi Arabian-led assault on Yemen has disrupted life-saving aid programs across the country, international aid agencies have said.… Haajir Maalim, country director at Action Against Hunger, said they had suspended all operations in the northern regions of Hajjah and Al-Hudaydah and Abyan and Lahj in the south over security concerns. He added that they were seeking to maintain some services to ensure thousands of vulnerable people were not cut off from support. “I think it is very worrying especially if the conflict carries on for a long time,” he said. “Yemenis are very resilient and life continues in Sana’a and other cities… but this can only continue for a short time.”
