The United Nations said it hopes to raise $3.85 billion on Monday to prevent large-scale famine in Yemen, warning that life in the war-ravaged nation was unbearable, with children enduring a ‘special kind of hell’. The French press Agency reports that more than 100 governments and donors will take part in a virtual donor conference as Yemen’s Huthi rebels push to seize the government’s last northern stronghold. The UN and its partners last year received $1.9 billion — about half of what was required.
