Stop British Bombs from fuelling the crisis in Yemen

Yemen is facing the world's worst humanitarian crisis. More than 22 million people need urgent help. 8.4 million people are on the brink of famine.

The recent military onslaught towards the key city and port of Hudaydah is making things even worse. We're calling on the new Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, to put Yemen at the top of his agenda and demand an immediate ceasefire - but we need your help to convince him to act.



This three-year conflict has been devastating for the people of Yemen and now the fate of 600,000 people in Hudaydah hang in the balance. Any advance on the port or the food supply routes risk cutting off millions more desperate people from life-saving supplies of food and medicines. As the poorest country in the Middle East, around 90 per cent of Yemen's food is imported and most of that comes through Hudaydah. The impact of any further attack could be catastrophic. The time to act is now.

The UK has a critical role to play in ending this conflict. Alongside the USA, our government is a key backer of the military coalition, led by the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. As the new Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt could act immediately to protect the people of Yemen. The UK government must push for an immediate ceasefire and take forward their responsibility at the UN to find a lasting peace deal to protect millions of vulnerable families.

Join us to take action and join our call to stop suffering in Yemen.
