Seventeen aid agencies working in Yemen are urging for the complete and unconditional opening of Hudaydah port to allow for the uninterrupted flow of food and fuel. A thirty-day concession period enabling the delivery of commercial supplies has brought only brief reprieve within the context of a sustained blockade on Yemen’s Red Sea Ports. Parties to Yemen’s conflict have a responsibility to minimise the impact of war on civilians in Yemen by mitigating all factors that exacerbate death and suffering, as over 8 million people are already on the verge of starvation.

We've just had some really exciting news from Yemen.

This week we were finally able to run our first food distribution. And it couldn't have gone better.

We were able to get urgent food packages to 317 families around Sana'a.

Each family now has enough food for the next month.

As the first international NGO registered in Yemen since the conflict started, it's great to see our emergency response in full swing with the next distribution taking place this Saturday.

UK arms trade with Saudi Arabia worth less than 50p for taxpayers, but brings in more than £6bn to arms dealers at the price of millions of lives in Yemen.

Today we have released a new report revealing that the revenues to the UK arms manufactures creating weapons sold to Saudi Arabia is double previous estimates.

The pitiful tax income from UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia sits at an estimated £30 million from corporation tax receipts and equates to less than 50p per head of the UK population towards public services.

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.
