At a time when Yemen is witnessing an increase in the rate of hunger due to the unprecedented rise in prices, the United Nations announced in a statement issued by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations “FAO” that it will distribute emergency aid to 24,000 poor families in Yemen, worth $5 million. This assistance will reduce food insecurity and help restore livelihoods and family income.
The financial contribution is $5 million to support the emergency activities of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in Yemen aimed at providing support for food security and essential and life-saving livelihoods.
