million a mile nourished and of those four hundred thousand are acutely malnourished and in urgent need of medical care. these people are harvesting their lunch leaves from a local wild vine and nothing else because there isn't anything else no bread no roast no pastor the family have to fend for themselves. i am having to have help from a new organization. house time and again if they could help the families suffering because of the war. the jobs are one of many families who have fled to the remote hard to region to escape the fighting between the saudi led coalition and the who thing rebels this part of huggers not far from the capital sanaa about two
6:38 pm
hundred kilometers but the mountains here are high. saudi airstrikes have destroyed or damaged many roads in the area making it difficult for relief supplies to get through. this is why families like the de obs are subsisting on leaves in a desperate attempt to fend off starvation. because the children are weak undernourished and often sick. so you can shop i mean you know what when my husband still had a job we could buy all sorts of things rice fish chicken milk juice anything yeah you had asked me if we had met and if it. knew her family story is a common one in yemen. the main hospital and treats many malnourished children if
