Mafraj Radio #28: Wartime Journal bonus episode

This episode features another entry in our Wartime Journal series. We’ve asked contributors in different parts of Yemen to record audio journal entries for us, conveying their own personal experience of Yemen’s ongoing war. Our first installments featured recordings by an anonymous civil servant living in San’a. That same contributor offers her observations on how Yemen’s war has pushed millions of Yemenis into deep poverty, and even starvation. 

We’ll hear more from other citizen journalists in future installments of the Wartime Journal. If you’d like to record your own journal entry for Mafraj Radio, email us at We will protect contributors' identities to whatever extent necessary; we can even disguise or replace your voice.
