Djibouti: Crossroads Nation

RTÉ journalist Joan O’Sullivan was funded to travel to Djibouti, a small country just 30 kilometres from Yemen, that has become home to tens of thousands of Yemeni refugees. For the past two years, Yemen has been hit by civil war and famine leading many to flee to neighbouring Djibouti. Joan’s project examined the conflict in Yemen, its consequences, the people who have been forced out, and the NGOs based in Djibouti who are trying to help. She had two reports broadcast on RTÉ News in November 2017. Watch here and here. She also had two reports featured on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland. Listen tot he first piece here, the second piece here.
