Emaciated Yemen Girl Whose Picture Symbolized War And Famine, Dies  (November 3, 2018)


In battle-weary Yemen, 7-year-old Amal Hussain, whose horrifying emaciated photograph took people by storm and symbolized the country’s long-running war, died in a hospital on October 26, 2018


The New York Times reported that although Amal was being fed with milk by the nurses every two hours, she was suffering from diarrhoea and kept vomiting, and her condition kept deteriorating. As Amal’s doctor in charge Mekkia Mahdi pointed out, she was “no meat” and “only bones”.

The devastating portrait of the young girl in pain, who died in a refugee camp several miles away from the hospital, became emblematic of the horrid condition of the war-torn country, where the civil war is killing thousands each day. The country is a stark picture of hunger, despair, violence and disease.


Although Amal was still sick and malnourished, she had to be discharged from the hospital because there was a requirement for the room for other patients. “We have many more cases like her,” said Dr Mahdi. Dr Mahdi suggested that Amal’s mother take her to a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Abs, but they had no money. The hospital was 15 miles away..... “I had no money to take her to the hospital,” Amal's mother said. “So I took her home.”  ...she died three days later.
