Joint Statement by 30 Non-Governmental Organizations Operating in Yemen on the Occasion of the 77th United Nations General Assembly

After enduring more than seven years of brutal conflict the people of Yemen have finally had the opportunity to experience what it means to feel hopeful. But while the conflict has slowed, humanitarian needs continue to increase, and the humanitarian response remains under and unequally funded.
