The Yemen Society for Consumer Protection (YACP) has said that 32,000 tons of rotten wheat have been sent to Yemen.
The YACP obtained a report and photographs of a World Food Program ship which was uploading rotten wheat in the port of Aden to be used by Yemeni citizens.
The report which was obtained from the ship “AMBER” was carrying 32 thousand tons of wheat on behalf of the World Food Program to be distributed between the provinces of Aden and Hodeidah.
According to the report, 20,000 tons of the wheat are to be sent to the province of Aden and 12,000 tons to the province of Hodeidah.
Since the beginning of Saudi-led aggression against Yemen in 2015, thousands of people have been killed and many more injured. The deadly military campaign has brought a severe famine for the Yemeni civilians.
UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Stephen O'Brien has said that seven million people in Yemen did not know where their next meal was coming from.
O'Brien noted that of that figure, almost 3.3 million, including 2.1 million children, are suffering from acute malnutrition.
Nineteen million out of Yemen's 26-million-strong population are in a pressing need of humanitarian assistance, he added.
