 A Yemeni journalist specialist in economic affairs described the famine in Yemen as the hen that lays golden eggs for the United Nations, in reference to the annual donations in support of the UN humanitarian plans in Yemen and that only small amounts are used.

Farouk Al-Kamali wrote on his Twitter account that the United Nations requested a donation of $ 1 billion for its humanitarian plan in Yemen in 2016, $ 2 billion in 2017, $ 3 billion in 2018 and it's getting ready for hitting a new record with a request of $ 4 billion to fund its humanitarian plan in Yemen in 2019.

Earlier, the Saudi ambassador to Yemen, Mohamed al-Jaber responded to UN allegations on Yemen relief aid and revealed that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have donated one billion US dollars to UN agencies, but that only 40 percent of that sum was spent.

For his part, the member of the Presidency of the Southern Transitional Council, Lutfi Shatara wandered what the United Nations did with the Coalition funds and called on the Arab Coalition to open an investigation into the funds they provided to the United Nations as part of the humanitarian response in Yemen, where did they go, as long as the United Nations claims that a looming famine threatens Yemen, characterizing the situation as "a disgusting U.N. extortion".
