Yemen: A country trying to survive amid war

2015-06-27

This is the cruelty of war. 

In Yemen, an estimated 21 million people are in dire need of help, among them people who simply don' have a home. 

The most vulnerable are children, who inevitably become the most vulnerable victims of war. 

JEREMY HOPKINS
UNICEF Representative in Yemen
"Everyday children wake up to the horrendous sounds of bombing and street fighting, and what's worse is that many of these children don't have enough food to eat, they don't have safe water, they're poorly nourished and they can't access the health clinics and hospitals that they really need to.”

Finding hospitals isn't easy. It's estimated that 158 medical centers and hospitals were affected by war. There's an obvious lack of resources, but some clinics don't even have electricity

AL-MAGTARI
Doctor
"There is no electricity at the hospital. We have no oxygen cylinders. How are we supposed to operate? We have anaesthesia, but our infant incubators have no oxygen. How can you carry out surgery without electricity to run the equipment? It makes you feel powerless, as if your hands are cut off, while you are expected to treat all these patients.” 

The cities that have been struck the hardest are Aden and Sa'adah, where hospitals are admitting a growing number of patients, with limited resources. 

ABDESSALAM
Arab Citizen
"I was in the street with two kids and my elder brother, when the antiaircraft bullets fell. We didn't feel it until it came besides us and exploded. A fragment hit me here. And another one in my abdomen.”

Living conditions are deteriorating in Yemen. With the instability of the government, imports of fuel and food are prohibited, which makes it much more difficult for other countries to help out. 

In the meantime, the pieces of war are still crumbling across the country, affecting the most vulnerable along the way.
