Food for Yemen – level 1

27-05-2019 15:00

Yemen has problems. Many Yemenis are hungry. The United Nations helps them. They send them food.

However, there is a problem. Not all of the food gets to the people. Houthi rebels take some of the food. They take about $15 million worth of food every month. Children die because of this.

The UN is trying to talk to the Houthis. If the talks fail, the UN can stop sending the food. If they stop sending the food, they will still help women and children.

Difficult words: worth (have a price in money), fail (go bad), will (in the future).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
