Akkon Aspekte Abend “Yemen”

Berlin, 14. November 2018

destroyed school in Yemen / zerstörte Schule im Jemen


We invite you to join the Akkon Aspekte Abend "Yemen" November 14, 2018, 17.30h.

The humanitarian crisis following and during the war in Yemen is neglected by both the global community and media. The crisis is very complex and driven by various stakeholders outside the Yemen. The current situation in health, food and WASH aspects is desperate. Standard procedures in providing humanitarian aid do not seem to function. Thus, we would like to reflect the current situation in Yemen and discuss strategies and approaches to address the most imminent challenges within the humanitarian and development sector.
