Yemen Gets Help – level 3

11-12-2017 07:00

Yemen is in a war and it has been hit by weeks of air, land, and sea blockades, with people also at risk of losing access to clean water as the country runs out of fuel.

The United Nations has been helping with the fuel supply for some water stations, but it cannot easily help due to the war. People think that almost 16 million people are now without clean water. Also, experts think that this water crisis will make an outbreak of cholera even worse.

Recently, humanitarian aid shipments arrived to help this situation. Everyone hopes that this will help stop the spread of infectious diseases.

Difficult words: blockade (when a military does not let a country get supplies), cholera (a disease from infected water that causes vomiting and diarrhoea), humanitarian (helping other humans).
