Yemen

Three years of war in Yemen have eaten away at the safety nets available to millions of people. Both major parties of the conflict have caused civilian deaths and suffering, and obstructed the delivery of humanitarian aid. More than two million people are displaced from their homes. Among the victims is baby Radwa. Her father, Abdullah, says: ‘I was advised to take [Radwa] to hospital as she was suffering from malnutrition … You see your child dying in front of you – why don’t they let us live our lives? We want them to stop the blockade and the airstrikes, so we can live normally’.
