Indonesia: Muslim Body Calls To Help Hunger-Hit Yemenis

Indonesian Ulema Council asks Islamic, humanitarian bodies to raise funds and help people in Yemen starving due to war.

Indonesia's top religious authority has called on Muslims in the country to raise funds to help hunger-hit Yemenis.
The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) asked the wealthy Muslims in general, and Islamic and humanitarian organizations in Indonesia in particular, to raise funds to help people in Yemen who are starving due to war, Bunyan Saptomo, chairman of the council's Commission on Foreign Relations and International Cooperation, said in a statement late Sunday.
The statement said the council appreciates the UN's call to help Yemenis who are suffering from hunger as a result of a prolonged war.
"The MUI, as the representative of Indonesian Muslims, expresses its highest appreciation to the UN for its commitment to continue providing humanitarian assistance to the people of Yemen since the war," said Saptomo.
The council urged all parties to settle disputes peacefully through a cease-fire and negotiations in accordance with the Islamic spirit of peace.
The council also stressed the Indonesian government coordinate with the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the UN to help resolve the conflict in Yemen peacefully and overcome hunger in the country.
Yemen has been wracked by violence and instability since 2014, when Iran-aligned Houthi rebels captured much of the country, including the capital Sanaa.
A Saudi-led coalition aimed at reinstating the Yemeni government has worsened the situation, causing one of the world's worst man-made humanitarian crises with nearly 80% or about 30 million of its people needing humanitarian assistance and protection and more than 13 million in danger of starving to death.
