The United Nation’s (UN) Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) on Sunday warned that 5 million Yemenis “will likely be living just one step away from famine in the upcoming year.”

In a brief statement posted on its official Twitter account, the UN organization said that more than half of Yemen’s overall population could head further into hunger in 2021. An estimated 50,000 people will be living in famine-like conditions in the war-ravaged Arab country during 2021, the statement added. Immediate support is urgently needed to save Yemen as “UN response remains only 49 percent funded,” the FAO noted.

The world’s worst humanitarian crisis in Yemen is the result of more than five years of 
brutal conflict.
