Yemeni Music and Discussion
ACEM (Arts and Cultures from the Two Shores of the World) and the Thayyizen association of Yemenis in France invite you to a discussion focused on the dramatic situation in Yemen and a Yemeni musical evening, to be held on Thursday, February 13 at 6:30 pm at 23 rue du Maroc, 75019 Paris (Stalingrad Métro station).
Since 2014, an atrocious war has ignited Yemen “the prosperous.” The consequences of this war are catastrophic for the civilian population. The country is suffering from one of the worst humanitarian disasters in the world: more than 3.3 million displaced people, more than 24 million people – about 90% of the population – in need of international aid, and about 2 million children under the age of 5 suffering from severe malnutrition. The nongovernmental organization Save the Children estimated that around 85,000 children died of hunger or disease in Yemen between 2015 and 2018.
