The Girl Who Brought World’s Attention To Famine In Yemen Dies

A petrified look in her eyes, body shrunk to an extent that ribs can be seen like her skin is a transparent sheet – Amal Hussain brought the world’s attention to the abuse of human rights in Yemen.

The portrait that was published in The New York Times initiated a wave of emotions among the readers, attracting an impassioned response from them. All of them were touched and concerned. Some offered monetary help, others wrote in to investigate about her health and how she is doing.

Amal’s mother informed that she has lost the battle of her life. She died at a ragged refugee camp, 4 miles away from the hospital. Nurses fed her every two hours with milk but she vomited regularly and suffered diarrhoea.

“My heart is broken. Amal was always smiling. Now I’m worried for my other children.” – Told, Mariam Ali, mother of Amal, who wept during a phone interview to New York Times

5 million people (some sources report that the number has jumped to 7 million) are on the brink of losing their life due to starvation. Among them, 1.8 million are children. The horrifying human cost of Yemen war didn’t convince the world to bat an eye, but horrifying murder of Jamal Khashoggi did. After Washing Post journalist was brutally dismembered, Saudi Arabia’s biggest arms suppliers in the Yemen war, Britain and United States, have asked for a cease-fire.

Jim Mattis, Defense Secretary, said that the cease-fire will be effective within 30 days.

“We have got to move toward a peace effort here, and we can’t say we are going to do it sometime in the future” – said Mattis. 

The United Nations has warned that 8 million Yemenis are reliant on emergency rations, and under the existing situations, the number is likely to rise to 14 million – which is almost half of Yemen’s population.
