A child from a refugee camp in Yemen makes glasses from metal hangers to sell and buy clothes for his family on Eid.
The move by the Yemeni refugee camp boy attracted not only the Yemeni media but also international and human rights groups.
According to Arab News, when Yemeni journalist Abdullah al-Jardi found out about the child’s creativity, he arranged an online auction to sell the child’s glasses.
The Yemeni journalist’s efforts on social media have also been praised by international charities.
Osama al-Gosibi, director of the Saudi Project for Land Mine Clearance (MASM) in Yemen, made a successful bid for the glasses.
Osama al-Gosibi said the auction of spectacles had raised 10 10,000. The money will not only be used to buy clothes for the child who makes the fountains, but also for other children living in the refugee camp.
He said it was part of Saudi Arabia’s human rights efforts in Yemen.
“The purpose of this initiative is to promote humanitarian efforts and support to meet the needs of life and to increase the enthusiasm and joy of the Yemeni people, especially children, as Eid approaches,” he said.
Massim King Salman is a project of the Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center.
Osama al-Gosibi said that before bidding, his team investigated the auction of the glasses and made sure that it was valid and legal.
Journalist Al-Jaradi says that the representatives of Massim should make the distribution of aid transparent.
Al-Gosibi has spent a year and a half in Yemen, according to him, the situation in Yemen is very difficult. He says he can see the pain and suffering in the eyes of the Yemeni people because of the Houthi insurgency.
The Saudi Project for Land Mine Clearance (MASM) has cleared landmines off the west coast of Yemen.
“We have helped clear landmines in many areas of Marab where there are refugee camps. We have also cleared landmines from villages, orchards and agricultural lands and that is why thousands of people have been able to return.
