Tawoos meets the United Nations Resident Coordinator for Humanitarian Affairs in Yemen
The Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation, Abdulmohsen Tawoos, met today with the United Nations Resident Coordinator for Humanitarian Affairs in Yemen, William David Grisley.
During the meeting, they discussed the humanitarian situation in Yemen as a result of the continued aggression and siege, which have caused the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, which has reached dangerous levels.
In the meeting, Tawoos pointed out that the reducing of food aid and its failure to continuously disburse it has exacerbated the humanitarian situation and the high rate of acute food insecurity, in light of the continuing waves of displacement.
He pointed out the need to work on raising food aid rations in all governorates, and re-disbursing them on a monthly and continuous basis to avoid slipping into dangerous stages.
He stressed the handling of importing food shipments, some of which arrive at the port of Hodeidah and are corrupt, and that citizens are not compensated with valid shipments.
