Spoiled Aid in Yemen & UN silence

[29/June/2021]

SANA'A, Jun. 29 (Saba) -The aggression and siege are a torment imposed by the US-Saudi aggression on Yemeni people, for more than six years. The WFP has also given us another part of the torment present in rotten food and its bitter taste and the presence of worms and insects in it.

The suffering of Yemeni people is intensifying day after day and the cycle of starvation is expanding and the US-Saudi aggression and siege for the seventh year in a row.

The World Food Programme (WFP) provides spoiled food continuously and in insufficient quantities in all provinces in Yemen, forcing poor families to sell the food basket in exchange for a simple healthy food.

Nearly 10 million people across Yemen remain “just a step away from famine.

There are enough grain to feed 3.7 million people for a month has sat unused and possibly spoiling in silos at the mills and that's because Hadi's government and silence of the United Nations.

 In a statement on the depot, known as the Red Sea Mills. "No-one gains anything from this, but millions of starving people suffer".

The World Food Programme (WFP) alone, has 51,000 metric tons of wheat stored there, a quarter of its in-country wheat stock and enough to feed 3.7 million people for a month. WFP has been unable to access the Mills since September 2018 because of fighting.

Access to the mills grows progressively more urgent as the longer they remain inaccessible, and the risk of grain spoilage is growing each day.

The WFP tried to bring large quantities of spoiled flour into Yemen, under the justification of disbursing it as aid to the Yemeni people.

The organizations  are politicizing humanitarian aid and trying to exploit and pressure to pass agendas and achieve advantages that they were unable to achieve by military force, in addition to using starvation and siege as a means of war with UN cover and silence.

They also play suspicious intelligence roles in favor of international powers. Espionage or intelligence work sometimes does not stop at mere information gathering, but rather goes beyond that to sow division and rivalry among Yemenis.

As well as, there are some international organizations that do not adhere to standards and specifications with regard to purchase, production date, expiry, transportation and storage methods, according to technical, health and humanitarian requirements.

The corruption of organizations stands behind international corruption that seeks to exploit the needs of the victims and achieve harm to those targeted by them in exchange for imaginary financial gains and profits.

Although there are a limited number of international organizations that work in accordance with humanitarian principles and standards and have relatively contributed to serving the victims and alleviating the suffering, the list of relief mafia is long in Yemen.
