SANA’A, YEMEN — The phenomenon of mercenarism in the impoverished Arab country of Yemen is not limited to the foreign fighters joining the Saudi-led coalition for money, but also includes UN relief organizations, international agencies, and their local partners who are ultimately denying Yemenis the food, healthcare, money and other aid they urgently need. Regardless of their goodwill.

According to a recent report, every ten minutes a child under the age of five dies from extreme hunger in Yemen, while six newborn babies lose their lives every two hours as a result of the continued deterioration of the health situation in the country. This, at a time when the country is riddled with aid agencies. https://www.mintpressnews.com/billions-donor-funds-yemen-fill-coffers-international-aid-agencies/263163/

THE SOCIAL JUSTICE SECTOR HAS AN INTERNAL RACISM PROBLEM Nine months into a nonprofit job that I loved — where I was the first woman of color in an executive role — I was forced to leave due to discrimination, exploitation, and retaliation from the young, liberal, white, woman executive director. After much reflection on my entire career, and countless healing conversations with other black women in leadership roles at “progressive” social justice organizations, I now understand that what happened to me is indicative of a much larger problem in the entire sector. https://sojo.net/articles/social-justice-sector-has-internal-racism-problem

Investigation reveals shocking conditions at NGOs caring for disabled people THAT WAS 2018 AND 2919? Report unearths neglect in Kenyan institutions, yet discrimination means children may be at risk of being killed if they remain in communities
Behind the gates of an orphanage at the end of a dirt road on Nairobi’s outskirts, more than 30 children are being given plates of rice and beans in a stuffy room that smells as though it serves as a dining room, physical therapy room and toilet. The scent of the food does little to mask the overpowering smell of faeces and *****.

Babies lie on worn, stained mattresses. Beside them, four children are tied in standing positions in order to “strengthen their legs”, the physiotherapist says. https://bhekisisa.org/article/2018-12-03-00-day-of-persons-disabilities-kenyan-orphanages-investigation-children-stigma/
