On World Humanitarian Day, Sunday 19 August 2018, the UN Chamber Music Society will present a Benefit Concert for Yemen.  World Humanitarian Day is a time to recognize those who face danger and adversity and to mobilize support for them.  It is also an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work.  Yemen is currently witnessing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis.  With more than 2 million people internally displaced, over 280,000 refugees, and 8.4 million people on the brink of famine - the people of Yemen urgently need our help.
