Living in my country #Yemen is like a journey into a nightmare war. Thread:
-I saw and heard things that I will never forget.
-I don't sleep well at night.
-14 million people are hungry while nearly 19 million (70% of the population) are in need of humanitarian assistance.
-It broke my heart to see so many undernourished children. Their skin worn thin and barely covering their bones, they could only make their distress known with thin. They were so weak they could barely stand.
-I saw people with their limbs blown off, & worse.
