Funding crisis forces UN to cut food aid in Yemen

The World Food Programme (WFP) has been forced to reduce food assistance to eight million people in need in Yemen because it is running out of funds, APA reports citing BBC.

From January, affected families will get barely half the daily minimum ration from the UN agency.

The five million Yemenis at immediate risk of slipping into famine conditions will remain on a full ration for now.

The WFP warned that its food stocks were dangerously low and more severe reductions would soon be unavoidable.

Donors have pledged only $2.23bn (£1.68bn) of the $3.85bn requested by UN agencies for the humanitarian aid effort in the war-torn country this year.

The WFP needs $813m to continue to assist the most vulnerable until May, and $1.97bn to help those on the brink of famine throughout 2022.
