“In Yemen 20 million people at the end”: the UNHCR appeal
“We stand by the side of the Yemeni population every day, the UNHCR’s DNA is to be there physically to meet the gaze of those in need. The situation in Yemen, after 6 years of conflict, is undoubtedly serious and unfortunately also heavily underfunded “these are the words of Chiara Cardoletti, UNHCR representative for Italy, the Holy See and San Marino, who launches a heartfelt appeal to give support to the people in Yemen.
“We ask everyone to make a small gesture to alleviate the many, too many sufferings of millions of Yemeni men, women and children,” adds Cardoletti. For 2021, 271 million dollars are needed, unfortunately only 119.5 million has been raised at the moment, or only 44% of the needs of the population are met. “The need is very great, daily and growing, but resources are extremely limited and a great and unanimous response of solidarity and support is urgently needed”, he concludes.
