Thanks to our supporters, we were able to refer Nusair to hospital for further treatment and cover the cost of transport for him. We also provided the family with nutrient-rich food baskets to help Suad feed Nusair.
Now healthy and happy, Nusair loves playing with his Mum, Suad, in their home in Yemen.

A healthier, happier Nusair
It’s now been three years since those dark days when Suad didn’t know if her little boy would survive. Today Nusair is a thriving three-year-old. He loves riding his bike and playing with his friends. And Suad couldn’t be more grateful.
“My baby now is healthier and normal like any child after medical support provided by Save the Children. He is now gaining more weight and his health is good. He doesn’t suffer from any disease. He is walking normally, interacts and responds with everyone in the family. After having lunch, he loves to play with his friends. He likes to go out with his father everywhere and he loves to ride his bicycle”.
Although the urgent assistance was welcomed when Nusair was a baby, Yemen is still in conflict, and things are still difficult for the family.
“We’re still surviving in this tough life, despite the increasing prices and the unavailability of the basics,”
But her baby is alive, and she has hope for the future. “I was really losing hope since I didn't find any charity to treat my child and return the smile to his face. At that time, I really surrendered to the destiny. Days went on and Save the Children identified my son's situation. They were really honest and provided comprehensive treatment and continuous medical checks up. Now he looks fine. His body seems healthy and he grow up healthier.”
