Bringing relief amid war and displacement

After 5 years of war, some 3.6 million people have been displaced within Yemen. The conflict has not spared civilians, which is in contravention of international humanitarian law and has forced many to be eternally on the run.

The label ‘internally displaced’ helps some people get much-needed aid, but hides the individual faces and stories.

During one of the distributions of shelter kits and household items, organised by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) thanks to EU support, we met Abdulhakem and Yasmen. This is their story.
