Think of your cozy home, complete with air-conditioning, running water, a working refrigerator and functioning sewage system. Your hunger, your thirst, and nature’s call all go nearly unnoticed as you can deal with these in a matter of minutes. Now, imagine a life where you had none of these things. A life full of a constant grueling search for food and water. To some of us it may seem unimaginable. Unfortunately, there are thousands of innocent children in the country of Yemen who are living in exact such conditions. These children have been caught in the crossfire of a brutal civil war responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands, and are suffering from malnutrition, dehydration, and disease on a daily basis.
We, as high school and middle school students of South Jersey and East Pennsylvania would like to send aid to these innocents in the form of food, water, medical supplies, toys, and other refurbishments. To do that, we need financial support from voluntary donors like you. Please consider chipping in and donating to Embrace Relief Foundation, a nonprofit humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization currently dealing with the crisis in Yemen. No amount is too little, and as Aesop said: “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
