Why the country of Yemen is so bad
Poverty in Yemen holds one of the highest rates in the Arab world. Half of the population lives on less than two dollars a day.
The main reasons for poverty in Yemen are the lack of basic resources, such as water, health care, and education. Rural and remote areas make it physically, intellectually, nicely and socially isolated from the rest of the region.
Outside of this, Yemen faces many other problems. Most residents do not have access to clean water and proper sanitation. Ten million people — almost half the population — go without enough food to eat. Child starvation rates are the highest in the world. Half of the children are under the age of five dwarfs.
