Dear Ben Spencer,
Your experience on the front line in medicine means you are probably much more able than I to imagine the human impact of the situation in Yemen.
On Sunday OCHA stated that 16 million people will go hungry this year, and nearly 50,000 are already living in famine-like conditions.
How can the UK government throw away its position of leadership on this matter by cutting funding at such a desperate time? I share the urgent concern expressed by Andrew Mitchell this morning.
I would be grateful if you would pass my concerns on to the FCDO.
