Humanitarian agencies are calling on the international community to support a lasting solution that could save the lives of millions of civilians in Yemen, as the United Nations prepares to host peace talks on Sunday 14 June in Geneva.
According to 13 international humanitarian organisations, what Yemen urgently needs is a permanent ceasefire, an end to the Saudi-led commercial blockade, an end to arms transfers to those responsible for breaches of International Humanitarian Law, and a sizeable increase in humanitarian and longer term development funding.
Objectives of the mission were as follows:
Conduct Assessment of:
• Extent and nature of damages in earthquake affected areas
• Urgent needs of affected populations
• District government procedures for delivery of relief
• Activities being implemented by local partner CHESS Nepal
1. General overview
Fairfield, Conn. (May 10, 2015) — A group of 17 aid agencies* working in Yemen today condemned the growing intensity of airstrikes in the north of Yemen on 8th and 9th of May 2015, as an estimated 70,000 people including 28,000 children flee from the northern Governorate of Sa'ada. In the last 24 hours the coalition has hit Yemen with 130 air strikes.
After more than a month of heavy fighting in Yemen, a group of 22 major aid agencies in Yemen have warned today their life-saving assistance risk coming to an abrupt end within a week unless land, sea and air routes are opened immediately for the importation of fuel.
