hunger, malnutrition widespread. Yemen is currently the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with 10 million people at risk of hunger and 7 million malnourished people. The fighting and the restrictions put in place by the authorities to prevent our organizations to reach the poorest communities. The conflict also continues to block the access of people to markets and services and damage to critical infrastructure such as hospitals, schools and water supply networks.

Reopen the airport of Sana'a. The recent announcement of the opening of the airport of Sana'a for flights to the doctors, however, is a positive signal. Will help thousands of yemenis sick people access to medical care. "The time has come to strengthen the peace process through the implementation of the agreements already signed in - and we note the widespread - and, in addition, by implementing the allocation of the profits of the port of Hodeidah as well to pay the wages and put an end to the political stalemate on the shortage of fuel. Although you ask for the full implementation of the agreement of Stockholm - continues the document - this should not be a prerequisite for peace in Yemen. A cease-fire at the national level must be put immediately in place to ensure that the peace talks can be expected for a long time. What Yemen needs most is an end to violence through a political solution to the conflict that takes into account the needs of women, young people and civil society as a whole".
