🔊 "Since March 26, 2015, the situation in #Yemen , already the poorest country in the #MiddleEast , has deteriorated into a living #nightmare where #children starve to #death daily and are shelled and #bombed in their homes and schools.
Thousands have been left with life-changing injuries, like 13-year-old Noran* who is wheelchair-bound after the blast wave from an #airstrike knocked her down and seriously damaged her spine. Her father is the sole provider for her and her seven sisters but he hasn’t been paid his public-sector salary for nearly a year and a half. Life is now a daily struggle.
13-year-old Noran says: “I used to go to school on foot, my life was beautiful because I could walk and write. Now, I can’t walk to school. I can only go with the wheelchair. I used to be able to sit in a chair at my desk and write but now when I try to write, my hand hurts because of the injury in my back. I used to love writing, but now I can’t even hold a pen.” The Yemen Data Project, an independent NGO tracking attacks in the country, reports that there have been 15,000 air strikes in the last 1,000 days. The use of explosive #weapons in densely populated areas is increasing as #modernwarfare becomes more protracted and urban in nature, and children are paying the price. Research suggests when these bombs are dropped on towns and cities, 92% of the #casualties are #civilians . On average globally, a civilian dies every hour of every day because of #mortars , #missiles , #airdroppedbombs , #rockets and other deadly explosive weapons.
The impact of these kinds of weapons are far-reaching. Noran’s life-changing injuries were not caused by the actual explosion, but by a #blastinaglass wave that was so powerful it devastated her fragile 11-year-old body.
Noran continues: “I call on all the free people around the world to #stopthewar in Yemen for me and for all the other children in Yemen. It’s our right to learn, it’s our right to build a bright future. I don’t want more children to be injured like me, it is not fair! I don’t want them to be like me.”

Apa yang kita dapatkan hari ini belum tentu kita mensyukurinya.
Apa yang ada dalam kehidupan kita belum tentu kita menyukainya.
Rasa adil memang belum tentu dirasakan semua makhluk di dunia. Akan tetapi apa salahnya rasa saling mencintai antar manusia kita ciptakan untuk sepetik kebahagiaan?
