Corruption of international organizations continues in Hodeidah, in light of the support of the Houthi militia, the Iranian arm in Yemen, as food items (biscuits and flour) have been destroyed, while these organizations seek to bring in corrupt aid from legumes.

Informed sources, to NewsYemen, reported that 2,187 cartons of tons containing various biscuits destined for relief of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) were destroyed in Hodeidah, and they have expired in warehouses.

The sources stated that the corruption of international organizations continues in light of the complicity of the Supreme Council for Humanitarian Affairs, noting that the United Nations Population Fund is one of the organizations most run by the so-called Jaber Al-Razhi, who is responsible for the coordination of humanitarian affairs, as he controls and sometimes chairs their meetings and who is most supportive of its corruption.

The sources talked about information about the destruction of more than 71 tons of expired flour belonging to the World Food Program (WFP).

Many relief supplies in warehouses are repeatedly expired and destroyed without benefiting from them, while the citizen suffers from poverty, need, and displacement.

On a related topic, the World Food Program is trying to enter 3 thousand tons of rotted and spoiled legumes through the port of Hodeidah.

Bassim Al-Janani, a journalist who is currently monitoring a campaign for corruption by organizations, said the program was trying to pass a shipment of more than 180 containers on board the Elena ship, which included aid from legumes.

Al-Janani added that the Standards and Metrology Authority refused to empty the ship, because it contained live insects and mosses and was not suitable for human use.

Previously, the program destroyed tens of tons of aid corrupt or damaged in warehouses.

It is noteworthy that "the program did not comment on this news, but it also does not usually comment except when it lacks funding."
