Freedom Challenge

This year's Freedom Challenge is the impact of Yemen’s conflict on children, especially the attacks on schools which block their access to education.

Hundreds of airstrikes by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, supported by the UK and the US, are targeting civilian buildings such as schools. That’s a war crime! Civilians bear the brunt of the war and children especially are suffering. 

The United Kingdom and the United States must immediately stop supplying arms such as bombs, fighter jets and combat helicopters to Saudi Arabia and other members of the coalition, which is violating international law by bombing schools and other civilian buildings.
