  • Unicef: Prés de 3 millions d’enfants menacés de famine au Yémen

"Des millions d'enfants au Yémen risquent de se retrouver au bord de la famine à cause de l'énorme manque de financement de l'aide humanitaire en pleine pandémie", a déclaré le Fonds de l'ONU pour l'enfance (Unicef) dans un rapport. Ainsi, le nombre d'enfants souffrants de la faim pourrait atteindre 2,4 millions d'ici fin 2020. "Nous ne pouvons assez souligner l'urgence de la situation".

Déclenché il y a plus de cinq ans, le conflit oppose le pouvoir, appuyé par l'Arabie saoudite, aux rebelles houthis, soutenus par l'Iran. Le choléra, la malaria et la dengue faisant déjà rage dans le pays avant même le début de l'épidémie de coronavirus.

Malgré l'urgence, seuls 39% du premier montant et 10% du second ont été récoltés à ce jour, selon l'Unicef qui pousse la sonnette d'alarme sur la réduction de ses programmes sur le terrain.

Le manque d'aide pour le Yémen en guerre, où l'épidémie de Covid-19 se propage risque d'entraîner plusieurs millions d'enfants dans la famine. " 30 000 enfants pourraient être en danger de mort causée par une malnutrition sévère au cours des six prochains mois (...) Ils auront un système immunitaire plus faible et une plus forte susceptibilité de mourir et de faire face à de graves complications de maladies, dont le Covid-19", prévient l'Unicef". Plus de trois millions de civils vivent dans des camps de déplacés.
