Friends of South Yemen

A request for your kind assistance

Friends of South Yemen (FOSY) is a campaigning organisation and information resource which welcomes dialogue and open discussion about the case for southern statehood.

South Yemenis unfortunately exist as non-state actors in a world, dominated by nation-states. This renders them invisible in most official political platforms that discuss their future. There, lies the challenge.

Since we were established in June 2020 we have produced two newsletters, organised an international online conference and published a booklet about the conference proceedings. You can view them here.

To ensure South Yemeni voices are heard and to support the campaign for southern statehood please help FOSY’s efforts to achieve change.

We very much welcome your contributions in the form of articles, photos, reminiscences, personal stories and anything of interest related to life, culture and events in Yemen that we can include on our website and in our newsletters.

Let us know if you can help us in that way by sending an email to

We are independent and also need funds to continue our campaign and information gathering activities. Please assist us with your generous donation.
