Hungry for Change - Yemen

The Republic of Yemen is currently facing the worst humanitarian crisis in its history. According to the United Nations, ten million people—nearly 45% of Yemen’s population—are food-insecure, with five million Yemenis at risk of starvation. Only half of the population has access to clean water. Hundreds of thousands of children are unable to go to school because of violent conflicts, which have also displaced nearly half a million Yemenis from their homes.

On Thursday, September 27, the Friends of Yemen group—including the United States, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and several other powerful nations—will meet in New York City to discuss Yemen’s current situation. Please join me in sending a message to the assembled world leaders and diplomats by 1) signing this petition, which urges the Friends of Yemen to fund the UN Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen, and 2) by fasting or skipping lunch on September 27 to demonstrate your solidarity with those suffering in Yemen.

This petition is sponsored by the Yemen Peace Project. You can learn more about Yemen and the Hungry for Change campaign at www.yemenpeaceproject.org/hungryforchange/.

      It is important that children not go hungry, but I fear that the Yemen Leaders might just use the aid to build another Billion Dollar Mosque.

      So many people in the world take eating on a daily basis for granted. We are all people with feelings and families. Why should our birthplace determine whether we eat on a daily basis
