44 national and international NGOs call for the renewal and extension of the ceasefire in Yemen

44 national and international NGOs call for the renewal and extension of the ceasefire in Yemen


With the current ceasefire agreement expiring on 2 October 2022, humanitarian organizations are reminding all parties to the conflict that the future of the Yemeni people is in their hands

As organizations working in Yemen, we recognize and applaud the important steps taken by all parties to the conflict as they continue to work to preserve the ceasefire. Together you have enabled the longest period of calm in more than seven years, bringing relief and hope to the people of Yemen. Over the past six months, we have seen a 60 percent reduction in casualties. The amount of fuel entering Hudaydah port has quadrupled, allowing hospitals and businesses greater access to fuel, helping maintain proper functionality and access to public services, including critical medical treatments. Commercial flights from Sanaa have helped 21,000 Yemenis access life-saving medical care, pursue education and business opportunities, and reunite with loved ones overseas.

With the current ceasefire agreement ending, now is a critical moment for the people of Yemen. While significant gains have already been achieved, more time is needed to ensure that Yemenis can begin to rebuild and recover their lives. After more than seven years of conflict, 23.4 million people in Yemen are dependent on humanitarian aid. A longer ceasefire would be the first step towards building lasting peace, which is essential to allow people to move beyond food handouts and build self-reliance. More time is needed to take steps to resolve civil servant pay, ensuring that (among many public sector workers) more teachers are available to support children through education and that more nurses and health doctors to be there to save lives.

While civilian casualties have declined during the ceasefire period, injuries and deaths from landmines and unexploded ordnance continue to rise. A longer period of peace would give humanitarian mine actors the time needed to import critical demining equipment, train staff and carry out clearance to help protect civilians, allow farmers to begin reuse the land and to ensure that children can attend school without risking their lives. A longer extension of the ceasefire would be the first step in further building on the gains of the past six months and creating the stability needed to deliver long-term aid. If the conflict resumes now, it not only risks destroying the gains already made, but threatens Yemen’s future development.

The families we speak to tell us they want the conflict to end and understand that while the ceasefire may not be perfect, it is a crucial step on the road to long and lasting peace. A reduction in fighting means that for the first time in more than seven years, children can start the school year without fear of attacks, including those caused by airstrikes and ground-based shells and rockets. As one first grade teacher said, during these six months, my students have begun to change their perception of seeing an airplane flying overhead. To not be terrified, confused and uncomfortable. I hope they won’t have to change their perception back to what it was before.
