Yemen Famine, People trapped and starving

Donate

I am not personally collecting money. But I do encourage you to donate to reputable charities that are working to save lives in Yemen.

Following the launch of DEC's Yemen Crisis Appeal in December 2016, I recommend this as one of the best way to donate to the Yemen Crisis. DEC is the Disasters Emergency Committee, which is a coalition of 13 UK Charities.

In the first week after its launch on 13 December 2016, this appeal raised £11 million including donation matching by the UK government which quickly reached its cap of £5 million. Nearly a year later, the appeal has so far raised a total of £24 million.

Alternatively, you can give directly to the UK charities below which have launched their own Yemen Crisis Appeals.

House of Commons International Development Committee

On Wednesday 27 January 2016, the House of Commons International Development Committee, chaired by MP Stephen Twigg, heard evidence from non-governmental organisations, from the Department of International Development (DFID) and from Foreign and Commonwealth Office Ministers on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen and the UK Government's response. On the same day, the Guardian published an informative article by Stephen Twigg entitled 'Yemen: the devastation of a nation, largely ignored'.
The first meeting (above) started at 1pm, and the committee questioned a panel of four expert witnesses on the Yemen crisis, as follows:

Julien Harneis, Head of UNICEF Yemen
Josephine Hutton, Regional Programme Manager, Middle East, Oxfam
Grant Pritchard, Director of Advocacy, Media and Communications on Yemen, Save the Children
Roy Isbister, Head of Arms Unit, Saferworld

Though now somewhat dated, I include this here as evidence of the kind of work that the above organisations are doing, often at great personal risk, to support the people of Yemen and save Yemeni lives.

Here at YemenFamine.com I am focussed on the humanitarian aspects of the Yemen Crisis. The above meeting was followed immediately by a second 1 hour meeting in which the committee interviewed a panel of UK government ministers to account for the UK's foreign policy actions in relation to the Yemen Crisis.
