Subject: Paris Humanitarian Conference on Yemen
Dear President Macron,
We welcome French efforts to address the ongoing armed conflict and humanitarian crisis in Yemen, and your announcement during Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s visit to Paris on 10 April that France would host an international humanitarian conference on Yemen in Paris in June.

LE MOT DU DIRECTEUR PAYS

This statement is made on behalf of 22 international NGOs current working in Yemen.
INGOs are delivering life-saving humanitarian assistance to millions of vulnerable Yemenis, despite the complex and serious nature of the security situation and sustained bureaucratic access constraints.
The right to critical life-saving health services of 9.8 million Yemenis caught in the intractable civil war that is in its fourth year has not received adequate policy and media attention leading to a dire humanitarian crisis, especially for mothers and children.
For Immediate Release
Washington, DC - As Secretary of State Rex Tillerson prepares to testify on the administration’s budget, a leading group of humanitarian, development and global health organizations are releasing new data that shows just how devastating these proposed cuts to the United States’ foreign aid budget would be to millions of people in the poorest countries.
The analysis finds that under the proposed budget:
In 2017, with the support from the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), WFP and partners piloted, for the very fisrst time in Cameroon, a multipurpose cash project to address both food and non-food needs of displaced populations in the Far North region, particularly in logone and Chari Division. This allowed greater flexibility in meeting beneficiary needs in terms of health, food, hygiene and sanitation, while promoting livelihood opportunities.
Geneva, Switzerland - A coalition of medical and humanitarian organizations, some working inside besieged Eastern Ghouta, have urged the United Nations Security Council to vote for an immediate cessation of hostilities to allow urgent humanitarian assistance to all areas in need in Syria. The Security Council is expected to vote tomorrow on a resolution aimed at implementing the cessation of hostilities and lifting sieges on areas like Eastern Ghouta.
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.

Concerns for hundreds of unaccompanied children sleeping rough in Greece this winter
NGOs launch roadmap for handover of refugee response to Greek Government
More than 2,000 unaccompanied children are on the waiting list for safe shelters in Greece, according to a new report by 12 organisations. The chronic shortage of accommodation for children is just one of the gaps in services that is worsening as the Greek Government prepares to take full control of the refugee response.
