An estimated 24 million people need assistance and protection in Yemen, the UN warned on Thursday. With famine threatening hundreds of thousands of lives, humanitarian aid is increasingly becoming the only lifeline for millions across the country.
A public accounting for Saudi Arabia's conduct in Yemen is critical, and evidence by experts outside the U.S. government should be considered when determining future certifications. InterAction member organizations and other civil society groups should support congressional hearings on this matter and weigh in with both Congress and the State Department about their concerns in Yemen.
Eight international organizations are teaming up Monday for an unusual collaboration: a two-week fundraising campaign aimed at raising money quickly to alleviate famine in several African countries and Yemen.
