The ongoing conflict in Yemen has created the largest humanitarian disaster on earth today. All sides have shown complete disregard for the protection of Yemeni civilians.
Children have been hit the hardest, and dozens are killed by hunger, disease and bombs every single day.
The UK Government is an influential leader on the world stage and is the fourth largest donor of humanitarian aid to Yemen. It is also a key ally to some of the main parties to the conflict, providing both weapons and diplomatic support to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and other members of the Saudi-led Coalition.
The international community, and the UK Government in particular, must do more to protect the children caught up in this conflict.
We have four campaign calls:
- For children to be protected from violence, including from UK-made weapons
- For all groups harming children to be held to account by international law and the UN
- Full access to humanitarian aid for children and their families
- Better funding for humanitarian aid
Read more about our four campaign calls, and why this conflict in Yemen is happening, below.
We’re standing side by side with children in Yemen. Until the war stops, neither will we.
