The NUS Middle East Institute is pleased to collaborate once again with the Arab Network @Singapore (AN@S) for a public talk on the current devastation and humanitarian crisis in Yemen. We are both honoured to host a renowned and respected figure in Yemen, as well as among the global Hadhrami (South Yemen) diaspora, Mr Muhammad Bin-Dohry, as our featured speaker for this event.
Mr Bin-Dohry will share his personal and professional experiences on the developments unfolding in the war. His presentation will also give particular emphasis on strategic cities in South Yemen namely Hadhramaut, Al Mahrah, Aden and Taiz, which are the originating cities of most migrant Arab families in Singapore. He also has direct personal involvement in facilitating humanitarian aid and other forms of support for South Yemen from the Hadhrami diaspora around the world. The advantages and challenges of the supporting network between the diaspora with the motherland will also be discussed at this talk.
