A Yemen Card
Today I want to show a card from Yemen. The card shows Ibb, a city of 160000 inhabitants , in southwestern Yemen. It is located in the so called Green Province. It was sent by Denise, a volunteer with the charitable organization Canada Bridges. Canada Bridges helps foster human engagement between the east and the west countering the polarizing outcomes of September 11th. These volunteers consist of doctors, nurses, midwives, lawyers, judges and teachers who exchange their knowledge and wisdom with their local counterparts in Yemen.
The stamp that Denise used is the 100 Rials value from a set of 14 , issued in 1996 showing Landmarks. The 100 Rials stamp shows Old Sanaá City.
