We the undersigned organisations call upon UN Security Council members to take action to bring about an immediate ceasefire in Yemen, end the humanitarian crisis and support the UN Special Envoy's efforts towards an inclusive political solution to the conflict.
Editor's note: The following joint statement was issued on April 25th by seven international humanitarian organizations operating in Yemen, namely Action Against Hunger, Médecins du Monde, Norwegian Relief Council, Saferworld, Save the Children, Tearfund, and War Child. Action Against Hunger republished the statement on May 2, 2017 in light of new warnings from the United Nations against possible attacks on Hudaydah port.
This statement is made on behalf of Save the Children and 16 NGOs, comprised of national, regional and international human rights and humanitarian civil society actors, including organizations that provide humanitarian assistance and support to vulnerable children and families in Yemen.
We are concerned by the rapidly deteriorating situation in Yemen as highlighted in the High Commissioner’s oral update on the implementation of Human Rights Council resolution 33/16 of October 2016.2
