Pope Francis appealed Sunday for food to be distributed to the war-ravaged people of Yemen, as children continue to suffer the effects of the humanitarian crisis.
In his Angelus address this morning, Pope Francis called on the international community to urgently promote compliance with the agreements reached, to ensure the distribution of food, and to work for the good of the population.
The Pope said he is following the humanitarian crisis in Yemen with great concern.
Yemen's population, he said, is exhausted by the lengthy conflict and a great many children are suffering from hunger, without being able to access food supplies.
The cry of these children and their parents rises up to God, said Pope Francis.
Following his appeal, the Pope invited everyone to pray for our brothers and sisters of Yemen, and led the crowd in the recitation of the Hail Mary.
