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.

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

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.

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.
