(18+) Yemen: Starvation, Disease And Death

By Alistair Reign, (Updated 6/10/17) August 11, 2016. Alistair Reign News Blog.

Starvation, disease and death of loved ones are an everyday reality for the impoverished country of Yemen; due to the Saudi-led bombings, blockade on supplies and aid, and US-imposed sanctions, unilaterally has plunged an entire nation into darkness.

The blockade on food and medicine has resulted in innumerable deaths by diseases that are treatable, but are left untreated because medicine is included in that blockade, and Yemen ran out of medicine many months ago – adding to the needless suffering and deaths of both the young and old – by way of treatable diseases such as liver, heart, lung, diabetes and cancers.

Because of the bombing of hospitals, clinics and care facilities, people are dying in greatly increased numbers from lack of medical treatment; victims suffering injuries from the attacks on civilians are unable to find doctors to treat their wounds, resulting in additional loss of innocent lives that could have been saved if the Geneva Convention “rules of war” were being respected by Saudi Arabia – and most importantly enforced by the United Nations.

The destruction of essential services it is not just happening to medical buildings. The Saudi-coalition airstrike targets have included a vast majority of Yemen’s electrical stations, food distribution facilities, farms, livestock, schools and busy markets, even homes for the disabled and elderly.

The game of peace talks in Kuwait came to an end this month - with no peace in sight for the helpless families. The Saudi's are surely feeling even more emboldened by the UN's lack of action, and acceptance of their slaughtering thousands of Yemeni women and children, because according to witnesses, airstrikes appear to have increased in the past few days.

Instead, the world is fed a "spin" version of the facts, under the banner of political righteousness. A humanitarian blockade is carried out under the banner of political restoration and civilians are being murdered under the banner of democracy! Dr. RS Karim.

There are a handful of humanitarian groups managing to deliver life-saving food, medicine, warm clothing, and even school supplies and gifts for children, and always a warm smile and compassionate companionship – while giving hope to parents and joy to children who are suffering in ways most of us cannot even imagine what it would be like, if we had to watch our children suffer and die in the ways of Yemeni parents.

Mona Relief was founded by Yemeni journalist and activist, Fatik Al-Rodaini, and London based humanitarian, Dr. R S Karim. The two had connected on Twitter social media last year (2015), and their mutual concern for the Yemeni people brought them together under one cause - to save Yemen lives. (Alistair Reign News Blog at www.AlistairReignBlog.com),For those who are aware of our fundraising campaign Colour of War, you will be familiar with the Mona Relief Charity’s dedicated volunteers, who are out there risking their lives to deliver life-saving aid to the Yemeni families and orphans living between a sudden death by bombing, and a slow, agonizing death by starvation.

Mona Relief was founded by Yemeni journalist and activist, Fatik Al-Rodaini. 

The following is a video showing the efforts of Mona Relief volunteers helping to deliver humanitarian aid inside Yemen.

“The world should be outraged at the atrocities carried out in Yemen in the name of democracy; the world should be outraged at the images of butchered children; the world should be outraged at the images of helpless mothers and the frail elderly; the world should be outraged at the blockade and senseless killing period!

In order to educate people, schools and other facilities will have to be rebuilt. Now that Yemen is on the map, albeit for all the wrong reasons, help will be available when all the smoke is cleared. There are always temporary solutions and alternatives available, but they cannot go hand in hand with war and bad politics - in order to do that synergy is essential. Dr. RS Karim.

Always remember that people power is always greater than people in power! The past cannot be changed but the future still remains within our power to make – we can all make it count!

The power to change things is always within a person – use it!” said Riaz Karim.

I will wrap this article up with an additional video showing the works of Mona Relief  inside war-torn Yemen.
