A Day in the Life: Internally Displaced Children in Yemen
How do you practice safe social distancing when there’s little room between houses? How do you wash your hands regularly when there’s no running water? These are questions faced by millions of refugees, migrants and internally displaced people (IDPs) all over the world as COVID-19 continues to challenge nearly every part of our daily lives.
Muna, who lives in Al Sha’ab camp in Aden, Yemen is one of the many IDPs in Yemen who have to confront the threats and challenges posed by COVID-19 while displaced from their homes. Originally from Taiz, Muna and her family fled to Aden, after the fighting in Taiz grew too dangerous for them to stay.
Currently Muna’s school in the camp is closed but Muna is working to build a new daily routine for herself – in spite of COVID-19 and the added threat of spring floods.
