UNHCR or the UN will never ask people not to migrate. The right to freedom of movement is a fundamental human right and applies to everyone. What we are saying is that you must make an informed decision and be fully aware of the dangers you will meet on the road.

18 Sep 2017 description

UNHCR remains deeply concerned by the significant impact the escalating hostilities are having on the protection of civilians and on the increase of newly displaced persons.

Despite the challenging operational environment, UNHCR continues to reach populations with much needed lifesaving assistance countrywide.

During captivity, the migrants are “horribly treated – beaten, starved, sexually violated, chained to the ground” so they are willing to pay, confirmed to IPS Chissey Mueller, from the International Organization for Migration’s Mission in Yemen.
