While we are grappled with our own challenges of staying at home, not being able to meet our friends, and hang out at our favorite spots, we should take out time to realize that there are people who are suffering way more than us. We need to remember that a little helping hand will help them sail their boat a long way.
Yemen, the main hub of political and social unrest in the Middle-East, is currently battling the worst humanitarian crisis and is on the verge of extinction. It is suffering a pandemic whilst un-equipped, dealing with a civil war, handling a famine which has left more than half the population malnourished. Floods have washed away people, homes, and the puny resources they possessed. They have also led to an outbreak of dangerous cholera, which continues to worsen every day due to the poor health sector and lack of aid. All of this has resulted in violence against women, premature deaths, abuse of migrants, and attack on civil society.
Who are the ones who suffer the most? Our future generation. Little kids who have just stepped into this world, not even seen what it has in store for them with their bare eyes, are victims of all of these challenges clubbed together. Children continue to be killed and maimed in the conflict, while the damage and closure of schools have disrupted access to education, leaving children even more vulnerable and robbing them of their futures.
