7:34 am
him up to date on their family's day to day news. because it was already detained for being undocumented seven years ago but he was later released the family's lawyer has had no luck obtaining u.s. citizenship for him. it's different because obama had a certain way of saying things that weren't hurtful simular meaning but not as hurtful this president the way he expresses himself. it's like we're not humans we're just stuff that's here in the world for now. rose can't accept her husband situation she takes part in protests against president trump and his supporters. that was. my first but since rose went public with her story she's received a lot of hate mail. dearman since kumar.

7:37 am
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. we have to have help from a new organization. time and again if they could help the families suffering because of the war. the jabs are one of many families who have fled to the remote hodge a region to escape the fighting between the saudi led coalition and the huth the rebels this part of hodges not far from the capital sanaa about two hundred
7:38 am
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. but the children are weak undernourished and often sick. there you can shop and no one well my husband still had a job we could buy all sorts of things rice fish chicken milk juice anything yeah you hennie i see if we had it and if it. was a family story is a common one in yemen. the main hospital in treats many malnourished children if they can get there. according to local pediatricians that can be
7:39 am
a major obstacle. gonna come up with eating there are a lot of people who are sick but are simply unable to reach the hospital and there is no organization helping people get to the hospital and that's why more people are dying. the children who are treated here have at least a chance of surviving. but for some of the starving children the help they get here is too little too late . the idea being i think. of the number of malnourished children is higher than it twenty seventeen and i think that the different view from the parish. every ten minutes a child dies in yemen of preventable causes according to the u.n.
7:40 am
children's fund unicef almost two million children are seriously malnourished as a result of war in the country a lack of medical supplies is exacerbating what's already a humanitarian crisis the doctors can't treat everyone and have to set priorities. and his children experience this firsthand at the refugee camp and. now conditions here are really bad our children are always getting sick but when we take them to the doctors they turn them away because they only treat the most severe cases and as the woman in the head of them hop into. the armor is son meets up with his friends here in the mountains of football is one of the boys few joys. we hope that we can go back to school and right now we only play football when i was in third grade my family still had
