Yemen: After a year of war, the world must no longer ignore the human suffering

More than 80 percent of the population of Yemen has been severely affected by the ongoing and brutal armed conflict that further escalated one year ago. Despite being one of the largest humanitarian crises globally, the Yemen crisis remains significantly under-reported and ignored by the international community. The time is now for world leaders to push for a permanent ceasefire and a sustainable, inclusive political solution in Yemen before one year turns into many more years of war resulting in further violence, displacement and loss of life.
