INGOs in Yemen are calling on all actors to lift restrictions on Yemeni airspace and allow for the reopening of the country’s main airport, Sana’a International. The official closure of Sana’a airport, one-year ago today, effectively traps millions of Yemeni people and serves to prevent the free movement of commercial and humanitarian goods.
This week we launched an emergency appeal for the children of Yemen.
2 years of brutal war have left children and families in urgent need of food and water. A staggering 400,000 children are facing malnutrition.
Our team is on the ground getting food to children before it's too late.
But the team isn't handing out actual food items. Instead we're using a food vouchers system.
Each voucher helps a family buy enough food for 1 month. Typically, the food available includes wheat, vegetable oil, sugar, pulses and iodized salt.
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.
This Sunday is Red Hand Day - also known as the International Day against the Use of Child Soldiers. Children across the world share red hand prints to call on world leaders to stop the use of children in armed groups.
There's lots of misinformation out there about children associated with armed groups.
This Red Hand Day, we want to set the record straight on 5 of the most common myths and misconceptions.
Child soldiers are used as fighters
