Tawoos: WFP’s decision to reduce aid portends a serious humanitarian catastrophe.

The Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation, Abdel Mohsen Tawoos, considered the decision of WFP to reduce aid to the Yemeni people, a dangerous indicator that portends a humanitarian catastrophe and famine.

Tawoos,In a statement to the Yemeni News Agency (Saba), said that the WFP’s decision comes as an extension of previous reductions adopted by the program in the areas under the authority of the Supreme Political Council and the National Salvation Government, despite the facilities provided by SCMCHA to humanitarian organizations.

“While we are providing WFP with facilities, we were surprised by the decision to reduce the distribution of aid from monthly to two months, and some governorates to three months, such as the governorates of Al-Bayda and Al-Hudaydah,” Tawoos said
He expressed his surprise at the decision to reduce aid, which is already reduced.

Tawoos indicated that SCMCHA addressed the food program and issued a statement in which it indicated that this reduction is not in line with the principles of humanitarian action.

Tawoos urged WFP to be neutral in humanitarian work, pointing out that the decision to reduce coincided with the escalation of the US-Saudi aggression coalition in its war on Yemen using the humanitarian card.

The Secretary-General of the Council of Humanitarian Affairs stated that WFP was the first organization to respond to the US escalation, calling on humanitarian partners to act impartially and provide assistance to the poorest and displaced families and those in actual need of aid and support.
