Description : Ahmad has just arrived home with a bag of Kudam - a local Yemeni bread - in his hand. His dry lips tell of his fatigue and the difficult life he leads. “I keep hope of an imminent return to our hometown and the peaceful lives we used to lead. Life here is very difficult. There is no water, no food, no medicine, and no stability”, he says.
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.”
