Around 20 million Yemenis depend on the UN Security Council taking concrete action to help end the conflict there that’s now sparked a “cholera scandal”.

That’s the call to action from UN Relief Chief, Stephen O’Brien, addressing the Council on Wednesday along with other senior UN officials; urging more funding and support from the whole international community.
