Yemenis Rising Up to Overcome Struggle

Alex Williams, host of Yemen News, joins Affan Syed’s podcast to continue bringing awareness about the Yemen crisis to a global audience. He describes the multiple disease outbreaks that Yemen has faced since the outbreak of the war and continues to celebrate Yemeni resilience. Alex says the real story of Yemen is the story of Yemenis who continue rising up day after day in the face of struggle. While wealthy countries continue fomenting hostility in one of the world’s poorest countries, and use it for their battleground, Alex and his host urge listeners to use any platform they can to turn a spotlight on stories of Yemeni overcomers.
