Hidden Heroes of a “Faceless War”

War in Yemen rages on.

Even though you rarely see it in the news. When you do, it’s described as a proxy war between regional powers. But what about the people of Yemen? How have two years of fighting affected their lives?

The war has triggered an unprecedented humanitarian emergency in the country, but Yemeni activists and peacebuilders have responded with courage, tolerance, and resilience, holding their communities together despite the violence all around them.

Yemen is at a critical juncture, and local peacebuilders need more support. It’s time to invest in peacebuilding and prepare communities to embrace a peace process that will take years to unfold.

Hear stories from the ground, celebrate the bravery of Yemeni peace leaders, and advocate for their work. #EyesOnYemen
