Description : In Yemen, this is not common, as many parents do not have the means to get to a proper hospital. Children often die at home with no care. Her mother tells us that the baby girl refuses to eat and barely sleeps. She also has constant fever. “Thankfully, she is better now, but I hope she stays that way.” The mother does not work and the father’s income as a daily worker is very little to cover costs of health care and proper nutrition.
