“We have been running an Emergency Surgical Hospital in #Aden, #Yemen, since the beginning of 2015. “The city is still dangerous because of sniper fire and stray bullets. Everyone is armed,” says Thierry Goffeau, who has just returned from Yemen after spending three months as an #MSF project coordinator in Aden. “One person shoots because he’s happy or for his own amusement and another shoots because he’s not happy. As a result, we are still treating patients with #gunshot wounds. You can gather up a handful of stray bullets every day in the #hospital compound where we work in the Sheikh Othman district. Last week, a bullet whizzed by the window of my office. A few days earlier, one came through the wall of the bedroom of one of our surgeons.” © Guillaume Binet/MYOP" By doctorswithoutborders on Instagram.
