Tell the UN to Force the Saudis To Lift the Embargo on Cholera Infected Yemeni Children

This petition had 164 supporters

Every 35 seconds, a Yemeni child is infected with the deadly cholera disease. Yemen is one of the poorest countries on Earth. For the last two years, it has been under siege and has faced horrible bombing and complete infrastructure destruction, including their hospitals, schools, and homes. Over the last two years, 10,000 people, men and women and children, have died in Yemen, while 10 million need urgent assistance and 40,000 have been injured. Out of these deaths, 1000 of them are due to cholera infection from unclean drinking water. This is totally and completely inhumane. We cannot stand by and watch our brothers and sisters suffer without taking action. This cannot continue. Sign this petition to tell the UN to force Saudi Arabia to stop bombing Yemen, lift the embargo, and let humanitarian supplies enter into Yemen. Thank you for signing.
