Desperate Measures: Somali refugees: Ose_Yemen0108-01

Refugees recuperate at a reception center in Ahwar a day after their arrival at the Yemeni coast from Somalia. Two sisters and a cousin traveled together from Mogadishu to Bosasso to Yemen. When they were thrown into the open water in total darkness of the moon-less night, they call each other to help each other stay alive. After the recovery, they will either try to find work in Yemen, the poorest nation in Middle East, or get smuggled into other countries, either options are difficult yet they prefer to leave it to their fate as long as they can escape the violence back in Somalia.
