(Al Jazeera)  – In a shantytown in a deserted area of Yemen’s al-Tohaita district, six-year-old Ahmed Abdullah Ali and his 13 siblings often go to sleep hungry. The effects of malnutrition have been the most dramatic on young Ahmed, whose small, frail body looks much younger than his age. “I get 500 Yemeni rials [$2] per day, and I have 14 children, so I can hardly provide them with bread, tea and goat’s milk to drink,” the boy’s father, Abdullah Ali, told Al Jazeera. “They are suffering from malnutrition. Always, they need food.”
