Save the Children’s Fatima Al-Ajel writes from Yemen where, for many children, this year’s Eid wasn’t so much a reason to celebrate, as a reminder of how difficult – and dangerous - life has become for them.
“For too many children this will be their last Eid,” she says. “In the very first days of the holiday I saw a photo of a Yemeni girl who had been killed in an airstrike. She was about 11 years old. On this holiday her family’s home should have been full of laughter and joy. Instead there was only rubble, tears and anger.”
