Amnesty: Saudi war on Yemen highly impacted disabled people
Share it ...



A prominent rights group has warned that the prolonged Saudi war on Yemen has impacted an estimated four-and-a-half million people with disabilities.
Amnesty International says the war and economic collapse have hit the public health care and social welfare services hard, resulting in a systematic failure to guarantee the rights of disabled people. The body also warns that people with disabilities should not face greater challenges in accessing essential aid. It says unlawful bombings, displacement and a lack of basic services have left many struggling to survive. Saudi Arabia started its war on Yemen in March 2015. Since then, thousands of people have been killed and millions of others displaced.
