The War Before the Next – Yemen’s North

Fatima Ahmed Abdullah Saleh Buqman sits with her son Yousef Hamdi Ahmed Shabsi, 8 month old, who is treated for lung inflammation and malnutrition in hospital in Abs, Yemen, Nov. 25, 2018. Because her husband lost his job as a result of rising fuel prices, the family was not able to afford suffiecient food. An estimated 85000 children have died of malnutrition in the three-year-long war according to Save the Children. While food is widely available, the economic situation has hit families hard and they often have to make hard decisions between buying food or making the drive from their countryside home to a hospital.
