2012 - Ongoing
Four years of war has worn Yemen down. The cholera outbreak, with over one million cases in less than a year, is only a symptom of the greater disease. While civilians are dying at an alarming and un-recorded rate due to airstrikes and on the ground fighting, the greater disaster in Yemen is that of shortage: a blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition and the ever-weakening economy has brought Yemen to a standstill. Government salaries have stopped, little aid can be imported, social structures that have held Yemen together through the ages are breaking down, and families can no longer provide for themselves, much less their neighbors. This project shows the path of Yemen from post-revolution election to the current day conflict.
