The Society holds regular meetings and lectures throughout the year and has been involved in sponsoring artistic visits to and from the UK and Yemen, support for medical and educational initiatives in Yemen, and backing for publications and exhibitions in the UK. The Society also provides a focus for contact between individuals of both countries for the development of cultural, commercial, and humanitarian activities.
