The world lets out a sigh of relief – but Yemen still desperately needs our help

It has finally happened: Donald Trump is no longer the president of the United States. Even after all his lies about election fraud and his attempted coup, he still had to leave the White House. And thank goodness for that.

The number of things Trump screwed up both in the US and abroad will take some time to fix and are so many I would have to write a ten post (minimum) series to list them all. But there is one despicable thing Trump did in his last days as president that I would like to bring attention to.

The Trump administration decided to label the government of Yemen as a terrorist organisation – which will lead to commercial import to the country diminishing so much it could create widespread famine. Yemen has been in a humanitarian crisis for quite some time and 80% of the country is already in need. Think what you will about the Yemeni Houthi government (and there is a lot wrong with it) but nothing will be fixed by having potentially millions of innocent people die of hunger.

Here is what you can do to help: sign this petition urging the Biden administration to reverse Trump’s decision.

Donate to The World Food Program to help feed those in need and to Medecins Sans Frontieres to give them healthcare. Consider also donating to Mona, a local organisation which delivers food and supplies to people in Yemen.
