Qadria and her family had a good life. The 20-year-old lived with her brother and mother in the Nihm district. They lived in a small house and Qadria had work: she painted women and girls with henna at wedding celebrations. Everything suddenly changed because of the war.
The family's life changed radically when the war reached their hometown. Their house was destroyed and they had to flee. "No roof protected us from the sun, no walls from the wind. We slept on the bare earth," the young woman recounts of her flight. Like so many, they fled to Marib province, to Al Gufeinah camp, a settlement for displaced people. There they persevered in a dilapidated and leaky tent that barely protected them from the elements. "It was a terrible time." At least she received help from our partner organization in Yemen..
Qadria received cash assistance for herself and her family and materials to repair the dilapidated tent. "I was very excited when I received the aid. I was finally able to help my family. Now our tent is finally tight and gives us some warmth and shelter." Thanks to this support, the family can now meet their basic needs necessary for survival.
As you perhaps know the situation in Yemen is extraordinary. This is the most severe humanitarian disaster in the world. Your support secures lives and helps us continue our humanitarian work in Yemen.
Thank you so much!
Yours Michael Tuerk
