Julie has worked in some of the most stressful, conflict-affected places in the world including in Gaza, Iraq, the Central African Republic, South Sudan and other affected countries in the Eastern African region. But, she says Yemen is a complex and protracted emergency, with deep impacts on children, their families and communities.
"People's coping mechanisms are brought to the absolute brink and after more than three years of conflict, people are getting tired and not seeing a way out," Julie says.
"It is an insecure environment and anything
can happen at any time so there is
always a degree of risk working in these
situations. But if you focus on that, you
wouldn't get out of bed in the morning."
