VIDEO: US TV host James Corden raises awareness on devastating famine in Yemen

 

US TV host James Corden raised awareness during his talk show earlier this week on the devastating famine in Yemen where millions of lives are at risk.

During The Late Late Show with James Corden, he took a moment to call attention to the crisis that is impacting over 20 million people.

Corden pointed out that this “tragic humanitarian crisis” is not getting “nearly enough attention” by media.

On Tuesday, the United Nations warned that millions of people in Yemen are at risk due to the lack of aid supplies.

“We have some 21 million people needing assistance and seven million of those are in famine-like conditions and rely completely on food aid,” UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen Jamie McGoldrick said.

After two and a half years of war, Yemen has been plunged into the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II.
