I sponsor a Yemeni girl in the hope this wouldn't happen to her. Although her father is deceased, it could still be a threat. Luckily the Red Crescent are present in her village and I have been able to sponsor her so she could go to school.

Yemenis in Britain are also guilty of sending their young daughters to be married off on the pretense of sending them on holiday.
