A child in Yemen eats a ready-to-use therapeutic food bag

An estimated 17 million people are at risk of severe hunger or starvation in Yemen; 75 percent of the entire population is in need of humanitarian aid, and over 460,000 children under five years are acutely malnourished. Since fiscal year 2016, USAID Food for Peace has supported WFP and non-governmental organization partners to provide humanitarian assistance, which included more than 474,000 MT of U.S.-sourced wheat, peas, and vegetable oil, as well as support to food voucher programs and therapeutic nutritional products for UNICEF, like the ready-to-use therapeutic food bag (RUTF) that the child pictured is eating.
