Al-Hamli discusses with the Acting United Nations Resident Coordinator the consequences of the decision to halt aid.
Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation, Ibrahim Al-Hamli, met today, in Hodeidah with the Acting United Nations Resident Coordinator in Yemen, Peter James Hawkin.
In the meeting, Al-Hamli reviewed the repercussions of WFP’s decision to halt distributing food aid, pointing out the suffering that this decision will cause to the neediest families, and the worsening of human crisis, which poses a threat to the lives of millions.
He warned of the dangerous effects resulting from the decision to stop food aid, and its impact on millions of Yemenis.
He pointed out that SCMCHA proposed many solutions that would ensure the continued disbursement of humanitarian aid to the most needy people, but they were rejected.
Al-Hamli held the United Nations accountable for the consequences of this disastrous decision, calling for a reversal of the suspension of food aid and work to continue disbursement to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe and a rise in cases of malnutrition.
For his part, the Acting Resident Coordinator stressed that he is working to ensure that aid is not stopped in light of the great humanitarian need for it.
The meeting was attended by the directors of SCMCHA branch in Hodeidah, Jaber Al-Razhi, Monitoring and Evaluation, Muhammad Al-Razza, and local organizations, Abdul Salam Al-Nawab.
