Can you imagine what 14 million hungry people look like? That’s nearly twice the population of London, all feeling the pain and fear of hunger.
Maybe it’s easier just to picture two hungry children, like those in this photograph from Yemen, dirty and tired but full of life.
Right now, 14 million people in Yemen – over half the country’s population – don’t have enough food.
A photography competition may be the last thing you’d expect to find in the middle of this crisis, caused by a violent civil war.
But the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Yemen recently organised one.
Why? “The competition is a tool and window to show the world how the humanitarian situation is getting worse,” said Adnan Hizam from ICRC.
