Sources at the Al-Thawra Foundation for Press and Printing, which is controlled by the Houthi militias in the capital Sana’a, exposed the theft of aid allocated to employees working in the institution by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).

Journalists at the organization received, for the second time, calls from the World Food Program to ask them whether they had received food baskets for August and September this year, the sources said.

“For the second time, staff members of the Al-Thawra Foundation for Press and Printing receive phone calls from the World Food Program (WFP) to ask them if they received food baskets for August and September,”

“All the colleagues have not received any kind of assistance,” Najri said in a post on his Facebook page.

According to staff at the Foundation, the communications they received from the World Food Program confirm that the Houthis continue to steal and loot the allocated aid, pointing out that this is not the first time that the aid for staff is stolen, where they had received at the end of last December By the program inquiring whether they receive aid monthly.
