Mothers of Yemen between «poverty and death»

yemen

As the Houthis war raged in Yemen, the suffering of mothers and children widened to include those living in urban centers, including the capital, Sana’a, the most developed city in the country. Many mothers can no longer afford a safe birth or at least the thought of securing it.

On a hot night in the summer of June, Faj’a Mohammed al-‘Alfi, who lives in a remote village in the Kharf area, north of the capital Sana’a, was about 60 kilometers away from his wife when she passed away during their child labor and delivery.

Al-Alafi is unable to provide a means of transportation to help his wife until late in the day of childbirth. She and her son were on their way to the capital Sana’a when she died.

Al-Alafi’s wife is not the only one in Yemen, but thousands of mothers face the same fate, especially in remote areas and cities. Health centers have become paralyzed, and there are few delivery centers.

The maternal tragedy in Yemen is compounded by the lack of a culture of reproductive health for some mothers. ” her second child was five months when she became pregnant with a third child,” says Shaima. “I did not use contraception, And my husband couldn’t afford to buy enough milk for the child who is suffering from malnutrition.

While doctors stress the importance of good prenatal,  and postnatal feeding, it seems very difficult to do, in the hell of the four-year-old war, which has transformed Yemenis into an unprecedented economic hardship.

According to UNICEF reports, more than 10 million Yemenis suffer from extreme hunger, and more than 1 million pregnant and lactating women suffer from malnutrition. According to Wafa Salah, an obstetrician.

 Most women who visit hospitals and clinics In recent years have been severely malnourished, noting that some organizations such as UNICEF have provided in some health centers food that helps pregnant women to treat malnutrition.

With every day of the war in Yemen, the horrifying numbers of maternal deaths and their children are expanding. One visit to the largest hospital for the treatment of children and women in the capital, Sana’a, is enough to paint the tragic situation of the country. The scene of overcrowding of mothers and children takes hold in all the alleys of the hospital. Their bodies have been malnourished and have been unable to breathe or eat except through injection.

While the report on motherhood and paternity under the recent UNICEF conflict indicates that some 49 percent of the health facilities in Yemen are collapsed and only 51 percent are still in need of medicines, supplies and medical staff, The hospital is working thanks to the support of organizations such as UNICEF,and UAE red crescent  which provides food, medicine, and medical supplies, says AL-Ezzari an employee of the hospital Al-Ezzari acknowledges that the hospital’s health services have been greatly reduced, as it faces the problem of increasing demand from patients. He stressed that the hospital receives daily and within six hours of the working hours about 60 children  and pregnant women suffering from acute and moderate malnutrition
