Yemen: 6,400 war wounded treated by MSF in the first half of the year


AA / Yemen

The humanitarian non-governmental organization (NGO), Médecins sans frontières (MSF) has announced that it has provided care to around 6,400 injured in Yemen during the first half of 2021.

MSF said on Monday, saying “in the first half of this year thousands of wounded were treated at the organization’s facilities in Yemen.”

On Twitter, MSF explained without giving further details that they are victims of war and violence in the country.

According to the same source, 3,269 malnourished children in Yemen received medical treatment during the same period.

Yemen has been the scene of a war for almost 7 years, which has claimed more than 233,000 lives, in a country where 80% of the population, or about 30 million people, are dependent on support and aid to survive, in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, according to the United Nations.

Médecins Sans Frontières is an international humanitarian medical association, created in 1971 in Paris by doctors and journalists.

Active with more than 65,000 people in the field, the NGO provides assistance to populations whose life or health are threatened, in the event of armed conflicts, epidemics, pandemics, natural disasters or exclusion from care. .
