The existing humanitarian crisis in Yemen deserves international attention. According to OCHA (Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs), “Extreme poverty, volatile food and commodity prices, increasing cost of living, unemployment and a decrease in remittances, contributing to reduced access to food, basic services and livelihoods for millions of Yemenis both in urban and rural areas”, has created a humanitarian crisis leaving many Yemenis vulnerable. (OCHA, 2012). Not only does this economic instability affect Yemenis, but also many refugees who enter the country seeking political asylum and a hope for a better future. It is Stand For’s goal to highlight this crisis through the creation of a short documentary discovering how youth have been affected and what college students can do to spread awareness and make a difference. Stand For’s goal is never to exploit the culture and/or region of the people we cover. Rather, it is our goal as socially conscious individuals to find ways in which we can bring stories to the international community that incite a revival for social change not pity. Join us on our journey as we continue to explore the complexity of this crisis in Yemen, while celebrating the beauty of the culture.
