Description : As the fighting intensified, Zahra’s home was hit. She lost her husband and sons in a split second. “I walked barefoot for hours in search of safety that day. I didn’t even have the possibility to bury my husband and sons. It was a horrible day”, she said with a sigh. “My life is not that much better today. I live in this tent all alone. No family, no money and no personal belonging”, she sums up.
ICRC website photo gallery, 13.11.2016: “ Yemen: stories behind the numbers of the conflict. Eighteen months into the conflict in Yemen, three million people have been forced to leave their homes as a result of fighting and insecurity. At times these people regrettably make up mere numbers and statistics in news headlines.
Behind the numbers of the conflict, there are however real stories of real people who have dreams, hopes and aspirations even amidst the most difficult of circumstances. This photo gallery introduces us to some of them. They invite us in to their temporary homes and open up on their thoughts and dreams.
To help support those displaced in Yemen, the ICRC provided food and essential household items to more than 400 000 people across the country so far in 2016. Various livelihoods projects were also initiated to support income generating activities and help those displaced earn a living.”
