Maud Bellon, the director of HI’s operations in Yemen, describes the situation in Sana'a, where the organisation is based and provides humanitarian response.
HI works in eight health centres and hospitals in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, where it provides rehabilitation care and psychological support, and distributes mobility aids such as crutches and wheelchairs. The conflict and the blockade imposed in November 2017 by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition are having a devastating impact on the population. Maud Bellon, the director of HI's programmes in Yemen, describes the situation.
On 8 November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines, affecting more than 15 million people. 5 years later, HI is still supporting Haiyan victims.
