The largest hospital in Taiz has sent a distress signal to the Yemeni government humanitarian organizations to save the lives of 400 kidney failure patients "who may die if the materials used in dialysis" are not made available.
In a statement on Saturday, the hospital said it is "running out of the necessary materials and what is left in stock is barely enough to cover the needs of more ." It did not specify what those materials are.
The hospital said it "400 cases are registered in the Dialysis Center and they are subjected to between 80 and 88 dialysis sessions a day."
The health sector is almost collapsed in Yemen's most heavily populated province as a result of the Houthi-Saleh rebel militias' three years of constant siege and continual bombardment on it.
