End the blockade completely in Yemen to save humans.

According to United Nation:

Over 17 million Yemenis (close to two-thirds of the population) is food insecure while a staggering 8.5 million people are on the brink of starvation. In all, close to 21 million people across Yemen are in need of humanitarian or protection support.

 The violence has also devastated basic services in the country, all but destroyed its water and sanitation system, and sparked a deadly cholera outbreak that has claimed thousands of innocent lives – including children.

Since late April 2017, the cholera epidemic has spread to nearly every corner of the war-ravaged country. It is estimated that well over 700,000 people in Yemen are currently suffering from cholera or acute watery diarrhea. More than 2,100 people have died of suspected cholera, which has affected all but one governorate in Yemen.

Urban water networks in seven cities have run out of fuel and now depend on humanitarian organizations to fill in the gap. Other cities will shortly be in a similar situation if the blockade is not lifted completely, which would leave 11 million people without safe water.

As a citizen/resident of Canada, I ask Government of Canada to:

-     Use diplomatic efforts to persuade countries to completely end blockade.

-     Send food, medicines and lifesaving items to Yemen.

-     Match charitable donations within Canada crisis in Yemen.
