A number of engineering students have reported they’ve had to abandon their studies to help with a humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

    The issue was brought to the fore after the Saudi-led coalition began its campaign against Houthi rebels in March.

    The coalition launched air raids in the capital Sanaa, targeting hospitals, clinics, and even hospitals that were operating on their own, forcing the government to close them.

    The strikes have forced tens of thousands of people to flee the country.

    In the past few weeks, many of those who had to leave the country have left their job in the IT sector, leaving only a handful of people in the field.

    Al Jazeera’s Ali al-Hamadi reports from Sanaa.
