Somali refugees Camp in Yemen

The European Commission as one of the leading humanitarian donors to Yemen, and the UNHCR as a leading humanitarian organisation, are working closely together to assist the victims of the humanitarian crisis in the country Yemen continues to face political instability with several internal conflicts. The number of internally displaced persons in Yemen's Northern Governorates is estimated at over 340,000. Parts of Southern Yemen are also volatile, due to violent demonstrations and attacks against security forces. In addition, the instability in the Horn of Africa, particularly in Somalia, has resulted in an increasing flow of persons landing on Yemen's shores and a growing number of refugees and asylum seekers. It is estimated that 174,000 people have arrived - in Yemen from Somalia and other countries of the Horn of Africa, and the stream continues. Poverty, instability and depletion of the resources of host communities mean that many IDPs and refugees have few opportunities to make a living. The most vulnerable among them depend almost entirely on international humanitarian aid. Pictures of this reportage has been taken in the Mzariq, al-Basatin, Kharaz, Saada and Harad camps for Somali refugees.
