AHRC warns of humanitarian disaster in Yemen, calls for immediate humanitarian relief:
The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) is deeply concerned about the worsening humanitarian crisis in Yemen as a result of the ongoing war and conflict that have left over 21 million people in Yemen suffering a severe lack of basic living needs.
On Monday July 1, 2015 the United Nations declared Yemen a level three world’s humanitarian crisis making Yemen the most urgent emergency crisis today. The UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) warns that over 20 million Yemenis, eighty percent of Yemen’s population, require humanitarian assistance, and lack access to basic needs such as clean water and sanitation. AHRC calls for immediate attention to Yemen’s crisis and calls for individual, group and governmental donations to help avert a humanitarian disaster in Yemen.
“The crisis in Yemen should shock the conscience of the world” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “Millions of Yemenis face a dire humanitarian crisis. We urge immediate relief efforts to avert a disaster,” continued Hamad
Life for Relief and Development (LIFE), a leading American charity organization that has spent millions of dollars on international relief efforts throughout the world, has launched a national humanitarian campaign calling for immediate aid to the people of Yemen.
