PBS NewsHour.org featured Bushra Aldukhainah, a CARE Yemen area manager, in a story about the war in Yemen where 75% of the country is in need of humanitarian assistance.  

Bushra tells PBS NewsHour that there is no longer a safe place in the country, that airstrikes occur everywhere and parents are faced with the painful decision of whether to send their kids to school.  A Yemeni, she has also been displaced by the war.

“I’ve seen the dead bodies of children and men and women who I knew in [the IDP camp] with my own eyes,” she said. More than 2 million people are internally displaced in Yemen.

“The IDP camps in this war were the first to be targeted, so now people are afraid to even gather in camps and have instead pitched tents in isolated areas,” she said.
