3/20/20 Scott Paul on Yemen’s Ongoing Humanitarian Crisis

by | Mar 24, 2020

Scott Paul discusses the looming cholera outbreak in Yemen as the country prepares for yet another rainy season. Thanks to U.S.-backed Saudi bombing of critical infrastructure, the people of Yemen lack the tools to fight cholera: basic nutrition and clean water. Paul describes the state of the overrun, under-equipped Yemeni hospitals, warning of their inability to deal with the current crisis, let alone what could happen if the coronavirus spreads there. Scott reminds the audience that President Trump could pretty much end this war with a single phone call, but instead continues to placate Saudi Arabia.

Scott Paul leads Oxfam America’s policy advocacy on a number of emergencies and cross-cutting humanitarian issues.
