Blog: There was a time in Yemen...

There was a time when hearing airplanes flying used to put a smile on my face. It was a reminder of the good memories from a holiday that had just ended or of the plans I was making for my next trip. Sooner or later that time will come, but unfortunately the more peace is delayed the more innocent people pay the price.

Blog: Finding hope in Yemen, as I witness a never-ending war

I believe in a better future for the Yemeni people. Despite the fact that over 3.1 million people were forced to flee because of the war, and the enormous number of people in dire need of basic services, I still see children smiling and trying to go on with their life. It is hard to know that so many more people need support, that there is not enough assistance, but these children are a source of inspiration to all of us and this is what keeps us going.
