As we have learnt browsing this page, that Robbin Sendry is from Brooklyn, New York, but now lives in Taiz, Yemen. Taiz is a city in southwestern Yemen. It is located in the Yemeni highlands, near the port city of Mocha on the Red Sea, at an elevation of about 1,400 metres above sea level. It is the capital of Taiz Governorate. With a population of over 600,000 in 2005, it was the largest city in Yemen at the time.
“…Medical services have also been caught up in the violence. Hospitals have been repeatedly hit by shelling and gunfire, one clinic has been hit by an airstrike, and ambulances have been shot at, confiscated or intruded in by armed men. Medical personnel have been shot at on their way to work, harassed, detained, threatened and forced to work at gunpoint. Lives are lost not only because of the constant shelling, indiscriminate airstrikes and gunfire but also because the fighting directly compromises access to healthcare. The wounded are dying because they cannot reach hospitals in time. Access to care is compromised by active frontlines, checkpoints and, in some areas, mines. Reaching the few hospitals still functioning not only entails long, costly and dangerous travel, but the cost of treatment is often prohibitively expensive. While MSF-supported and managed hospitals do not charge for treatment, they cannot alone meet the massive needs of a population deliberately targeted in this relentless war.
Two years since fighting started in Taiz, the city’s health services have largely collapsed – the result of physical damage to hospitals and of shortages of staff and medical supplies. Today, there are no public hospitals in Taiz city and its surroundings that are fully open and functioning. The few functioning hospitals lack staff, medications and basic supplies such as fuel and oxygen. Staff who remain often work around the clock in very difficult and insecure conditions. Salaries of public health workers have not been paid for months often depriving whole extended families of their only remaining source of income…”
