Yemen’s children are caught up in a war that is not of their making
Twins Yemen is a new project in its pilot phase.
This project was inspired by a report from the BBC’s correspondent Orla Guerin, which was produced by Claire Read and Suaad Al-Salahi, with filming and editing by Goktay Koraltan. The need so clearly evident in that moving report was reason enough, but the leadership shown by a remarkable young man, Ahmed Rageeb, provided yet further inspiration.
#Ahmed #Yemen #PT You can see Ahmed in action here, teaching class. Most pupils at the school never miss a day, sitting among the rubble, in a frontline area, striving for an education. Separate efforts are underway to help the school. We'll have more information on that soon. pic.twitter.com/qmPfCTNqR9

Heathfield School – Al Wahda Milat School
Heathfield School near Ascot in the UK is twinned with Al Wahda Milat School in Taiz, Yemen.
This relationship makes it possible for Heathfield School’s community to help the children of Al Wahda Milat School, but this is by no means restricted to the Heathfield community. Donations are welcomed from all those who are kind enough to make a difference to the lives of the children at Al Wahda Milat School.
Every penny donated through that page is spent directly on improving facilities at Al Wahda Milat School and quality of life for its children. Nothing whatsoever is taken by Twins for administration. All expenditure is carried out according to strict controls by Tamdeen Youth Foundation, supported by UNICEF and the Yemen Education Coordination Cluster.
