Description : He is married with kids and lives in Ibb province, approximately 194 kilometers south of Sana’a. He suffered from an injury in both his legs as bombs fell nearby his house. His family was safe, but he had to be rushed to the closest hospital in the city to receive first aid. It was a manageable injury but was left untreated and due to lack of proper health care services in Ibb, he acquired a serious infection which cost him his lower left leg.
