Hunger stalks Yemen's remote villages after four years of war
As Yemen’s war grinds into its fifth year with peace efforts stalling, ten-year-old Afaf's father sees little hope he will be able to give his starving daughter the food or healthcare she needs.

Across Yemen's remote mountain villages, the country's war-induced economic crisis has left parents like Hussein Abdu destitute, hungry and watching their children waste away from malnutrition and unclean water.

Sanaa, Yemen
Afaf Hussein, 10, who is malnourished, sits next to her stepmother as her father Hussein Abdu, 40, gives her a slice of an orange at a hotel in Sanaa, Yemen, February 14, 2019. Afaf, who now weighs around 11 kg and is described by her doctor as "skin and bones", has been left acutely malnourished by a limited diet during her growing years and suffering from hepatitis, likely caused by infected water. She left school two years ago because she got too weak. "Before the war we managed to get food because prices were acceptable and there was work ... Now they have increased significantly and we rely on yogurt and bread for nutrition," said Abdu. REUTERS/Khaled Abdullah SEARCH "YEMEN HUNGER" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
