Description : Ali graduated from Baghdad University and used to work as a teacher, then as accountant.
Ali said: "The situation in Yemen is becoming more difficult but people in the Eritrean community try to help each other out. There are many Eritreans here due to the endless strife in our country. Although Yemen welcomed us, I wish there was a safer country where I can live for the rest of my days.”
ICRC website photo gallery, 19.12.2016 : “ In Yemen, a journey to the unknown. They came to Yemen from all over in search of a better life. 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.”
