Peter Maurer, the charity’s president, said the overall situation in Yemen was “very dire, and very catastrophic” in terms of health. The two-year war has resulted in the world's worst-ever cholera epidemic, and hospitals are unable to keep up. According to the UN, nearly two million Yemeni children are acutely malnourished.

Regularly targeted since the outbreak of the conflict two and a half years ago, medical facilities in Yemen are struggling to deliver even the most basic care. Aden, in the south of the country, is relatively calm but even here access to healthcare remains problematic.
Staff at Al Kuwait University Hospital in Sana'a are among the tens of thousands of public health employees in Yemen who face the daily risks and challenges of working a country devastated by conflict—and who have been struggling to survive on little to no pay over the past year. Many health workers cannot afford to keep going, and many health facilities have had to shut down. Those medical staff who continue to work without pay are helping their communities out of a sense of duty, and holding out hope for change.

This, as Riyadh has waged a war on the impoverished country which has killed over 12-thousand-and-forty people and reduced much of the Yemeni infrastructure to rubble. Watch Live: http://...
