UNICEF appeals for urgent fund to cope crises in Yemen
March 26, 2023

The United Nations has made an urgent appeal for funds to avoid humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

In a statement, the UNICEF's representative in Yemen Peter Hawkins warned that nearly eleven million children in the country are in need of humanitarian assistance.

He said without urgent action, millions of children can face greater risks of hunger and malnourishment.

Peter Hawkins said the UNICEF urgently requires 484 million dollars to continue its life-saving humanitarian response for children in the country this year.

He said if funding is not received, the agency might be forced to scale down its vital assistance.
