The head of the UN migration agency, IOM, was in Yemen on Monday to stress the need for immediate humanitarian access in order to save millions of lives.
More than two years of violent conflict there means that 80 per cent of the population, or 21 million people, requires aid relief to survive.
Furthermore, Yemen is experiencing the world’s worst cholera outbreak which could affect one million people by the end of the year.
Despite these conditions, thousands of migrants continue to enter the country each month.
IOM spokesperson Leonard Doyle spoke to Dianne Penn from the capital, Sana’a.
He began by describing the situation on the ground.
