An IOM-charter flight carrying 210 stranded Ethiopian migrants from Yemen to the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa left Al-Hodeida airport yesterday (11/12/12.)

The flight, which was funded by a USD 2.1 million donation from the Netherlands, brings to more than 9,500 the number of destitute Ethiopian migrants helped by IOM to leave Yemen since 2010.

IOM’s emergency voluntary return programme for stranded migrants in Yemen has now received new backing from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC.)
