Old Sanaa

A busy time two days before Eid at Bab Al Yemen

Grapes from our land in Bani Hushaish.  Yemen's agricultural advantage is being wiped out by the growth of Qat replacing crops that can make Yemen the Fruit Basket of the region

A tree over 50 years old still providing the most delicious grapes

Yemen's forgotten children - a young girl from Al Rawda area which is one of the poorest areas in Sanaa 

Yemen's forgotten Children - These children live in a state which is alarmingly below the poverty line. Their tales of hunger and struggle brought sadness to my heart
