Casi 30 mil familias afectadas por lluvias en Yemen

Adén, Yemen.- Casi 30 mil familias fueron afectado por las precipitaciones que sufre Yemen desde julio ultimo, causantes de inundaciones que provocaron la destrucción de infrastructure y daños a la agriculture, alertó hoy la ONG Care.

Un comunicado de la entity no gubernamental highlighted that the rains hit 18 of the 21 provinces of the country, devastated after more than seven years of war.

Al menos 91 persons died and numerous injuries resulted or were missing, he underlined.

The institution highlighted that 190 sites that shelter more than 12 thousand displaced families in the governorate of Marib were damaged by the floods.

Care advirtió sobre el incremento de los riesgos de enfermedades transmitidas por el agua, como el cholera.

Recently the ONG Oxfam warned that the serious situation that the nation is experiencing worsened in the last months due to the increase in the prices of food in the world market.

Yemen imports 90 percent of its food, including 42 percent of its wheat from Ukraine, he recorded.

El Programa Mundial de Alimentos reveló semanas atrás that unos 19 milliones de Yemenitas, de un total de 31 milliones, sufren sufren seguridad alimentaria, aunque la cifra puede aumentar drásticamente durante este año.

The war began in 2014, when the Houthi rebels rose up in arms and occupied large areas of the country, including Sana, the capital.

Al año siguiente an Arab coalition, headed by Saudi Arabia, intervened in the conflict in support of then-mandator Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who gave power to the new Presidential Leadership Council. (PL)
