  1. Is there anyway that the Nurses can do a FaceTime call and record them, for the last time? Or just a recording, if that’s the case.

  2. If someone ignores this they have no heart
    People for the people I ask God and then people of good hearts and mercy to help me. I am Umm Muhammad. A widow, I have 5 orphan children, and my mother suffers from a stroke and needs treatment, surgery and medical care. I live in Yemen I live in harsh conditions that people do not bear. We live in war, poverty, hunger and fear. I do not have food in my house and I cannot pay the house rent. We do not have warmth in the house, in order to protect me from the cold of winter, and debts accumulate on us and increase day after day, and the owner of the house threatens us every day to expel us to the street, my brothers. Please look with the eye of mercy and reach out to us quickly. And see our suffering with an eye of mercy.
    Who can help us, do a message for me whatsapp for this number
    For whoever that does not know what is happening in Yemen please keep reading:

    Yemen is the poorest Arab nation
    The war in Yemen has been described as the worst humanitarian crisis in the world
    Over 8 million people are on the brink of famine •Both sides of the conflict have taken part in war crimes, with civilians caught in the middle
    The conflict has killed at least 10,000, with more than 40,000 casualties
    3 million people have been forced from their homes due to fighting, and 280,000 have sought asylum in other countries
    22.2 million people are in need of life-saving humanitarian assistance including food, water, shelter, fuel and sanitation
    2.5 million children are out of school due to fighting
    More than 11 million children, about 80% of the country’s population under the age of 18, face the threat of food shortages, disease, displacement and lack of access to basic social services During conflict attacks on civilian homes or buildings, targeting medical facilities, and launches from civilian areas are all banned by international law, but these laws have all been broken in Yemen. I’ve never seen Yemen in such a horrible state in my life. please try to contribute whatever you can, whether its a small amount of money
