Description:
The Human Rights Council is an intergovernmental body attached to the United Nations that seeks to promote concrete actions for the real construction of Human Rights. In this particular case, the situation is far from encouraging. Yemen is immersed in one of the largest humanitarian catastrophes in history due to an internal ethnic-political conflict between huties and the central government that make up the Yemeni civil war. The international response has been the economic blockade at different scales which has caused a climate of instability unrecognizable in any other international context. Today in the country there are already two million children in a situation of malnutrition, including 385,000 children with severe acute malnutrition and one step away from death. The situation is pressing and falls on the hands of the states' representatives to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations to face the problem directly.
