Three years of conflict and lawlessness in Yemen brought the Yemeni hunger, diphtheria and cholera. Nearly three of four Yemenis rely on humanitarian aid to survive. The dire situation is deteriorating every day. In March 2018, the UN Security Council made a strong plea for humanitarian access: Humanitarian support and peace must take the place of destruction.
Four representatives of NGOs from Yemen, who visited a pledging conference in Geneva (April 2018), also visited Brussels and other European capitals to share their story with politicians and policy makers. During their tour, facilitated by Oxfam, they made time for a small expert meeting for KUNO, the platform for humanitarian knowledge exchange in the Netherlands.
Speakers: Nabil Al-Kumain, Yemen Family Care Association; Tameem Abdulraqeep, Wedyan Association for Society Development; Layla Al-faqeeh, Generations Without Qat; Safa Murad Rafiq, TOBE Foundation for Rights and Freedoms.
