Description : Al Abdo said: “My dream is to have a return ticket to my country. I am jobless, homeless and helpless. I have to live in six-by-five meter room, sometimes sharing it with more than 30 people who fled their countries looking for better chances. But our dreams were shattered by reality.”

However, those hopes have been jeopardized by a conflict that has raged since March 2015. ICRC spoke to ten people now living in Sana'a to get a sense of the challenges they face.”
