During past year, we have reflected our blessings and obstacles that have made previous year challenging yet promising for the future of Orphane children. Many have wondered how we have managed and more importantly how our children have remained hopeful during these uncertain times, and the answer really is through love and care. The dedication that our staff has shown to keep bringing hope and love to our children and the house's administration staff , is what keeps our homes going. With this in mind we’d like to take a moment and thank all of our staff that have worked non-stop with a smile on their face, despite the risks of going to work with our children every day. Moreover, we'd like to share our sincerest gratitude for the support of you, as we have been able to relieve the daily operating costs which have increased due to the pandemic and it's subsequent quaratine situation.
Furthermore, we’d like to share a few of the activities that have taken place these past months, as well as a few things to look forward to this end of the year!

What a difference a few months make! We sent out our last update in early December, which told you about a orphan community support and protection in Sana'a, Yemen
As you know, we are working with social welfare institutions (orphanages) across Yemen, training them and their dorms management people on many diffrent sides of life starting from Gender Basied Violence protection,mental & psychlogical health,including sports and ending with lessons on art and music.
The current epidemic has put our training on hold, although the team have been extremely busy planning for the next phase of our work, converting our training materials into online resources, which will eventually be accessible to orphanages and foster parents across Yemen.
The impact of COVID-19 has had far-reaching implications for all of us. As the virus has spread across the world, we have faced new challenges, including physical and psychological health risks, school and business closures, family confinement, isolation and economic vulnerability.
Now after children returning back to school we supported an activity in school of orphans , in this training children was tought about the importance of planting and the effect of trees in our global enviroment as well as the life cycle of plants.
Each child has planted his plant, which is sponsored and take care of it during the semester and watch their growth
