This is the text (if you need help).

The UK is cutting aid to Yemen. It will cut humanitarian aid by over 50 per cent. Yemen is one of the world's least developed countries. The UN says Yemen is the country with the most people needing help. There are about 24 million people who need help. This is about 85 per cent of its people.

There could be a big crisis in Yemen. Millions of people have no food. Famine could make this worse. It could be the world's worst famine since the 1980s. The UN said: "More than 50,000 people are starving...and 16 million will go hungry this year." It said the UK cut in aid is very sad.
