Since the start of the current conflict in Yemen and in response to the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in the country, The British–Yemeni Society has been running its Yemen Crisis Appeal. Over the past four years the Society has collected from members and friends more than £30,000 in donations, which it has distributed equally between our two partners, the Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), and the Yemen Red Crescent Society. This is no mean achievement for a Society of our size, and every member will take pride in it.
As the MSF put it in a letter to us, which you can read below, "Every day that goes by in Yemen, fighting continues and new casualties arrive in our hospital. People are forced to live without basic care or adequate resources. This is happening now, in our time. We cannot forget about the people of Yemen".
The British–Yemeni Society would like to thank its members and everyone who has donated to the Yemen Crisis Appeal and encourage you to remain as generous to the people of Yemen as before. You can donate by sending your contribution to our Treasurer, John Huggins at 44 Constitution Hill, Norwich, NR3 4BT, or by approaching one of the Trustees during our events. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase your donation by a significant 25% by signing our Gift Aid Form, if you have not done this already. Thank you.
