U.N. Falls Short Of Yemen Aid Target As Governments Cut Donations

United Nations officials are calling on the international community to send aid to the thousands of people dying of starvation in Yemen.

The intergovernmental organization said that nearly 50,000 Yemenis have already starved to death while 16 million more are expected to go hungry this year.

The secretary general of the Norwegian Refugee Council, Jan Egeland, said that Yemen is expected to experience a massive famine not seen since Ethiopia in the 1980s.

The United Nations reportedly held an emergency meeting on Monday to raise funds for humanitarian aid missions to the Western Asian nation. The organization reportedly did not hit its target of $3.85 billion as most countries were forced to cut back on donations because of the pandemic.
