I am living in Hodeidah since a long time. This year we are suffering from shortage of water, which is very essential during the summer. The unavailability of water is due to the fact that underground water has been depleted. We simply have no other source of fresh water any more.
People are not ready to dig any more wells to provide water because of technical and financial constraints. Please pass our suffering to the concerned authorities. I just hope our cries won't fall on deaf ears.
