In Saada

In Saada, Northen Yemen,  you keep your children safe.
And the only safety feasible comes from digging the ground. Deep, deep, because your home is a target of airstrikes or has already been one and you do not have a home any longer.
You cover your children with a blanket as it gets cold.
In your heart, though, you know that this same shelter may be your children´s tomb because the airstrikes do not differentiate between a home, a garden, a market, a fishing village or a mosque.
Life in Saada, for the past 360 days goes like this.
