Yemeni children direly suffer due to the current economic situations Yemen faces after turmoil that hit the state in 2011.
Yemen instability and turbulence prevented many aid agencies from adequately providing urgent assistance to many areas and plunged ordinary Yemenis into harsh suffers.
According to he United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), hundreds of thousands of children are facing starvation in Yemen, with one million children acutely malnourished.
"Close to sixty percent of Yemeni children under the age of five today are suffering from chronic malnutrition," UNICEF representative Gert Kapelari said.
Kapelari said that poses huge problems for Yemen's future, pointing out that 250,000 children today in Yemen are at risk of dying or having life long consequences.
Meanwhile, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said that more than 50 percent of children are stunted.
As Yemen faces a number of critical development challenges, including high unemployment, diminishing oil reserves and depletion of water resource, the lately anti-regime demonstrations worsened the situations.
