A Rare Look Inside the Yemen Crisis

Yemen’s category-3 emergency—the highest level on the UN’s scale—has made media access impossible. A rare, inside look of the catastrophe comes from Doa’a Kutbi Omer, a health program officer with the International Medical Corps.

She has been blogging about her experience in Aden, Yemen as an internally displaced person (IDP) while trying to provide medical care to her fellow IDPs.

Her latest post describes daily life in the midst of Ramadan as she and her family struggle to survive, the fight to contain malaria and the race to re-open a hospital that stands in the middle of the conflict.
