INGO joint statement

رداً على الإدعاءات الخاطئة التي وردت في بعض الوسائل الإعلامية الناطقة بالعربية في اليومين الماضيين والتي تشير إلى أن المنظمات الإنسانية قد سحبت موظفيها من صنعاء، نود أن نوضح أن فرقنا –المحلية والدولية على حد سواء – ما زالت تعمل في الميدان من أجل توفير المساعدات المنقذة للحياة لليمنيين في جميع أنحاء البلاد. وتستمر فرقنا بالعمل بالرغم من بيئة العمل البالغة الصعوبة بسبب الحصار والقيود المفروضة على وصول المساعدات الإنسانية وتصاعد وتيرة العنف.
