Rise For Lives Organises Peace Walks In 9 Cities In New Zealand


Rise For Lives, a new youth-led peace and human rights
movement is organising a national peace walk which will take
place on the 27th of February, 2021 to bring attention to
the Yemeni Crisis, the largest humanitarian crisis on the
planet in the past 100 years.

Nine cities will be
participating in this national peace walk. Some cities will
have amazing speakers, singers, and dancers at their
walks.

To gain a deeper understanding of the situation
in Yemen, the youth behind Rise For Lives have reached out
to the United Nations. They have provided them with facts
about the dire situation in the country and linked the
movement with key persons who were able to provide more
insight into the crisis and who have offered to provide
support for this fast growing movement.

The youth
behind Rise For Lives call for governments and influencers
from all around the world to stand up and take action to
help end the conflict in Yemen and help the people of
Yemen.

This walk is the beginning of more national
peace walks and events in New Zealand in 2021. The movement
now also has global members and more and more people from
all around the world are showing interest in
joining.

Walks Details:

“Around
24 million people are suffering in the world’s worst
humanitarian crisis yet most of the world doesn’t even
know about it. The youth behind Rise For Lives want to see
the Yemeni crisis coming to an end not tomorrow or the day
after but today!” -Timi Barabas- Rise for Lives Founder
and National Coordinator. ” I am very proud of the so many
young people who have put so much hard work into growing
this movement.”

In addition to organizing walks
around the country, Rise for Lives raises funds to support
Yemeni people.

countries.

About
Yemen Crisis

Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis
in the world in the last 100 years, with more than 24
million people (80% of the population) in need of
humanitarian assistance, including more than 12 million
children. Since the conflict escalated in March 2015, the
country has become a living hell for the country’s
children. Sanitation and clean water are in short supply and
one in five children under the age of five in parts of Yemen
are estimated to be acutely malnourished. Only half of
health facilities are functioning, and many that remain
operational lack basic equipment like masks and gloves, let
alone oxygen and other essential supplies to treat the
coronavirus. Many health workers are receiving no salaries
or
incentives.
