Yemenis flee across Red Sea to escape war

Desperate to escape the war in Yemen, thousands of families have made the dangerous trip across the Red Sea to Djibouti.

That can mean more than 10 hours on a gruelling boat ride and overwhelmed aid agencies are not able to offer much support to those who arrive.

Life is very harsh in what is already a very poor country on the Horn of Africa, but the refugees feel they cannot go home until “the situation changes”.
