- I am from Sana’a. People there and Yemenis everywhere are praying for their problems to end. They are looking for security and a loaf of bread. Are we all failing our people? Women are the greatest victims of the war and most in danger. The deteriorating economical and security situation has a negative effect on their mobility, on their livelihoods and on the security of their family as a whole. It is not safe for them to leave their homes. They have a lot to deal with. Many families are politically divided; there are cases where brothers got killed fighting for opposing sides of the conflict. This war must and will end. We need a political solution. We need a dialogue between the parties and give Yemen back into the hands of its people. When it is over, we will need a development plan to rebuild our country and have to start from where we stopped. Nabila AlZubair, National Dialogue told to UNDP Yemen.
