The situation in Yemen is deteriorating day by day, necessitating comprehensive, long-term and multi-sectorial support for mothers and children in the country, the UN children fund warned in a report obtained by Debriefer,according to a UNICEF’s report.

Delayed payment of more than 1.25 million civil servants (including doctors, social workers and others working in the public sector) has led to closure of or lower working hours at some vital facilities like health centers, schools, water and sanitation facilities and other basic community utilities, the report read.

Urgent challenges in the form of poverty, scarcity of food and shortage of safe drinking water continue to pose particular threat facing the most vulnerable segment in the Yemeni community; the pregnant women, newbornsand their mothers, according to the UNICEF.

24.1 million people – almost all the Yemeni population – are in need for humanitarian assistance, 1.3 million people have been displaced, 10 million Yemenis are suffering starvation, 238,000 people are living in pockets of catastrophic famine – risking their existence –and 360,000 children under 5-year-old are suffering severe malnutrition.

Only 51 percent of the all health facilities are fully functioning, although they are suffering cute shortage of medicines, equipment and staff.

The war has forced community health and obstetric care to frontline, with civilian deaths directly associated to lack of resources increasing.

Maternal death rate has severely increased during the war, from 5 deaths per day in 2013 to 13 in 2018. These mere figures have other consequences, as when a mother dies this highly increases the death risk to her children.

On behalf of children and mothers, the UNICEFhas called the international community to end the war, maintain the healthcare system in service, increase resources and improve pro-health actions, said the report.

In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started  a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and  prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.

Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
