The Saudi-led Coalition's newly launched Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Operation (YCHO) plan pledges a welcome injection of funding to Yemen's 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan, for which $2.96 billion is urgently needed to help tackle the world's biggest humanitarian crisis.
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.
As humanitarian organizations working in Yemen we condemn in the strongest possible terms the allegations of corruption and bias in the provision of relief assistance that continue to be put forward by the parties to the conflict in Yemen without proper substantiation.
La communauté humanitaire au Yémen s’insurge du maintien du blocus, par la coalition menée par l’Arabie Saoudite, du fret humanitaire et commercial pourtant essentiels à la survie de la population yéménite.
