This #WorldHumanitarianDay Islamic Relief is advocating for civilians trapped in war zones; for mothers that have held their dying children in their arms, children who dream of going to school, and doctors who struggle to save lives with insufficient resources, these are the people that are affected, and they need our help and protection.
Sign the petition at worldhumanitarianday.org to reaffirm that civilians caught in conflict are #NotATarget.
Sabha Salih Yaseen (35), Mosul
Single mother Sabha Salih Yaseen lives with her two sons in West Mosul, Iraq.
When their house was destroyed by a bomb that landed nearby, Sabha and her sister and children ran for their lives with severe injuries, petrified that they would be killed at any moment.
“We didn’t eat anything for 10 days and fell into an extreme despair. One of my boys just stopped talking because of the trauma. I often have nightmares now. Life has very little meaning for us anymore.”
