“Yemen is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. It’s not just in the media. It’s reality.”
These words from Indra Adhikari in Yemen struck me to the core.
Through one of modern technology’s miracles, Indra, his two colleagues and I spoke from my home and his office.
Suddenly, via a crackling computer audio link, this crisis was no longer half a world away. It was in my living room.
Right now, after more than three years of conflict, people in Yemen could be at risk of facing the worst famine the world has seen in 100 years, according to the UN.
And an average of 75 people are killed or injured every day.
Nearly every child, woman and man in Yemen is affected.
