The World Food Programme plans to double its food assistance programme for Yemen, aiming to reach up to 14 million people "to avert mass starvation", it said in a statement on Nov 8, 2018. "Yemen is the largest hunger crisis in the world. Millions of people are living on the edge of famine and the situation is getting worse by the day," said WFP, which is already providing food assistance to 7-8 million Yemenis. Photo courtesy UN
