NPR quoted Jolien Veldwijk, CARE Yemen’s assistant country director extensively in a story about the country’s humanitarian crisis. Veldwijk says that aid workers are working as fast as they can to address the needs but just can't keep up. "I think what needs to be really clear to everyone is humanitarian aid is not enough to stave off the impending famine," she says. "The only way forward for Yemen is a political solution to the conflict." Read the story which ran on the websites of dozens of NPR affiliates here.
