Three-month-old Yemeni twins, Al-Hasan and Al-Hussein, suffer from acute malnutrition, weighing only two kilogrammes. Divorced, unemployed and without any income, their mother Fullah Mohammed struggles to feed them along with her other seven children. The malnourished twins are being treated at the Yemen Swedish Hospital which receives more than 20 acute malnutrition cases daily from the Taez province. Doctors in the hospital say that they get support from International organisations but if funds fall short, the hospital might have to shut its doors to hundreds of malnourished children in Taez. War-torn Yemen is in imminent danger of the worst famine the world has seen in decades, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned Friday.
