Yemen’s children have been caught up in a war that is not of their making
This project was inspired by the report from BBC correspondent Orla Guerin shown in the first short video below (produced by Claire Read and Suaad Al-Salahi, filming and editing by Goktay Koraltan). It features the remarkable young Ahmed Rageeb, stating his wish list for his school. Happily, some of those things have been provided, as described in Orla’s follow-up report shown in the second video below (produced by Wietske Burema and Ahmed Baider, filming and editing by Goktay Koraltan). More help is still despreately needed though.
#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

Two years on update on Ahmed – the remarkable school boy we met in war torn #Yemen in 2021. He's got big plans. Since our last story he and his school have been helped by https://t.co/zHW80MUN4p, @IslamicReliefUK + Tamdeen Youth Foundation. With @Goktay @wburema @AhmedBaider1 pic.twitter.com/LBGZp7TH22

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.
Those kindly wishing to make a general donation to Twins can do so through the Donate to Twins link below
