Amira Al-Zaidi, a 3-month-old girl who suffers from a congenital heart defect, has died. She desperately needed to travel abroad for life-saving treatment. However, she was unable to travel due to the closure of Sana’a airport by the countries of war coalition against Yemen, led by the US, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Notably, the coalition imposed a war and siege on all civilians, men and women, and no one was spared from this damned war. Thousands of Yemeni children face daily the same fate of Amira, whose mother was unable to travel with her for life-saving treatment abroad. Unfortunately, Amira died in her mother’s arms. After her burial and as many days went on, Amira’s mother is still remembering her all the time, with tears streaming down from her eyes. How could she forget the sufferings and pains of her little child? She was helpless and unable to save the life of her daughter, despite her relentless efforts and attempts in vain. In fact, the great barrier that prevented her from saving her daughter’s life was the closure of Sana’a International Airport in front of her and in front of millions of Yemeni patients like Amira.
Amira’s mother is still heart-broken and deeply grieved until now due to the tragic loss of her child.
“My little daughter came to this world after a long wait, and before she came, I bought her a small bed, clothes, and toys,” said the helpless mother sadly. She added, “I did not know that there was a terrible fate awaiting me, and I did not expect the existence of human monsters that would prevent a little girl and her mother from traveling for life-saving treatment. We live in real suffering and the world and the UN are watching the genocide we are subjected to silently. My dear daughter is one of that genocide; she has passed to another world that has no place for these human monsters.”
“However, I couldn’t forget my little girl, because she came at long last and parted us quickly,” the mother explains sorrowfully.
