Mafraj Radio #21: al-Hudaydah

On this episode we speak with Dr. Muneer Ahmed, a resident of the Red Sea coastal city of al-Hudaydah, about the local impact of Yemen's ongoing war. The Tihamah region of Yemen has been neglected--both by the powers that be and by the press--for a long time. Today we shed a bit of light on what locals are going through.
