The European Union mission in Yemen has said on Wednesday that four years of war on Yemen have exhausted the economy, cut off livelihoods and prevented access to basic services.
The EU mission added in a tweet on its account that the years of conflict in Yemen have led to widespread unemployment and hunger on a large scale.
أنهكت أربع سنوات من الحرب في #اليمن الاقتصاد وقطعت سبل العيش وحالت دون الوصول إلى الخدمات الأساسية.

The EU mission explained that it is working with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to provide assistance to vulnerable and marginalized groups in the Yemeni countryside to help meet daily needs, as well as create opportunities to allow them to settle down and live in dignity.
In a previous report, the mission had indicated that Yemen would become the poorest country in the world if the war continued until 2022.
