Storyline

Filmed from inside two of the most active therapeutic feeding centers in Yemen, HUNGER WARD documents two female health care workers fighting to thwart the spread of starvation against the backdrop of a forgotten war. The film provides an unflinching portrait of Dr. Aida Alsadeeq and Nurse Mekkia Mahdi as they try to save the lives of hunger-stricken children within a population on the brink of famine.

Children dying in Yemen
30 April 2021 | by npiaSee all my reviews

It's a decent documentary that could have been a lot better; it lasts 40 minutes and in that time it is very difficult to show many things; however, it is well done and shows us the sad reality of Yemen.
