An IOM-charter flight carrying 275 stranded Ethiopian migrants from Yemen to the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa will leave Al-Hodeida airport on Tuesday (25/9/12.)
The flight, which was funded by a USD 2.1 donation from the Netherlands, follows two other Dutch-funded charters on Tuesday and Wednesday (18 & 19/9) of this week carrying another 551 migrants. A third charter, carrying 89 medical cases and victims of trafficking, funded by the USA, left Yemen earlier this month.
IOM Press Briefing Notes Friday 27th July 2012 Spokesperson: Jumbe Omari Jumbe
Two IOM-chartered flights will depart from Yemen's al-Hodeida International Airport on Saturday (28/7) and Tuesday (31/7) for Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital, carrying some 554 stranded Ethiopian migrants.
The migrants were stranded in the north western Yemeni city of Haradh, near the border with Saudi Arabia. The town is a stepping stone for migrants from the Horn of Africa en route to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf in search of work.
The Netherlands has contributed US$ 2.1 million towards IOM's efforts to help vulnerable migrants from the Horn of Africa stranded in Yemen en route to Saudi Arabia.
The contribution, the largest by the Netherlands for IOM activities in the Middle East, will be used to provide humanitarian aid to thousands of stranded migrants in Yemen, who often suffer terrible conditions and abuse on their journey to find jobs and security in the Gulf States.
