Although the media hasn’t given the conflict in Yemen its fair share of coverage, the conflict is not any less violent than the war in Iraq or Syria. The UN has declared the state of humanitarian emergency in Yemen. Around 80% of the population is in dire need of assistance: food, medical supply, fuel, and access to safe zones. Other conflicts in the region in areas of interest to super powers have taken the spotlight and attracted world sympathy and foreign aid.
The stance of our Canadian government towards refugees from Syria and Iraq is a world example of compassion and humanity. Canadians of Yemeni and Middle Eastern roots are seeking Government’s help to grant them the same support and the ability the sponsor their families and loved ones via the G5 program along with the exemptions mentioned above.
