Petition We demand an immediate increase in Government aid for the famine in Yemen
Children are starving to death in Yemen. Millions of people are malnourished & this is quickly becoming one of the most catastrophic famines of the 21st Century. A million & a half children are currently starving to death in a famine partly caused by damage inflicted by UK-provided weaponry.
