Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World today applauds President Donald J. Trump’s request that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia allow food, fuel, and medicine to enter Yemen immediately. The country is facing the world’s largest food crisis, with 7 million people at risk of starvation. Yemen is also suffering from the largest cholera epidemic in history.

The aid will help save the lives of millions of people who are suffering in this conflict not of their making. Children have been particularly affected by this man-made crisis, and we hope the Saudi leadership will immediately allow aid to reach all those who need it.
“We would also like to thank Sen. Todd Young of Indiana for encouraging President Trump to take this step. Sen Young’s involvement has been critical to bringing this issue to the forefront of the administration’s and the American public’s attention.”
