READ MORE: A U.N. pledging conference is seeking $3.85 billion to provide life-saving assistance to 16 million people living on the edge of survival in conflict-ridden Yemen.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said there is no time to lose. He says famine is bearing down on Yemen. He said 16 million people are expected to go hungry this year, noting nearly 50,000 Yemenis already are starving to death in famine-like conditions.

He said the brunt of this humanitarian crisis, currently the world’s worst, is being borne by the children.

Since the war began in 2014, more than 18,000 civilians have been killed. The U.N. reports more than 2,000 civilians were killed or maimed last year.
