Yemen’s children have been caught up in a war that is not of their making

Fighting from the civil war reduced Al Wahda Milat School to a ruin.

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.

Two years on, Orla visits Ahmed again and he shows her the progress made at his school with the help of various charities and individual donors. Some details of that progress can be found through the link below. Ahmed still has big plans, as he explains in the report.

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.

There is a dedicated page for donations at JG Logo - Twins

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
