    SANA'A, Yemen - Thousands of people took to the streets of Yemen's capital, Sana'a, on Monday to a protest against the Saudi-led blockade on Yemen.

    The Saudi blockade has closed off Yemen's land, sea and air ports, exacerbating a humanitarian crisis and a Cholera epidemic. 

    Rahul Singh, executive director of GlobalMedic, revealed the true extent of the cholera outbreak in Yemen.

    "There are 800,000 folks plus in Yemen who have been affected by cholera. There's deadly water borne disease that is completely avoidable. We have kids dying en masse," Singh said.

    Since April, the World Health Organization has reported more than 908,000 suspected cases of cholera in Yemen and 2,192 deaths due to the disease.
