The Wider Image: Yemen orphanage braves nearby air strikes 
After two years of war, orphans in the Yemeni capital Sanaa have only one dream - to survive. The al-Shawkani Foundation for Orphan Care is located around 100 meters (yards) from the al-Nahdain mountain, widely believed to be an arms depot that has been repeatedly bombarded by Saudi-led coalition's fighter jets. Bombardment of the explosive-laden peak send huge mushroom clouds erupting into Sanaa's skies and shake the whole city. As the war rages on, the orphans suffer through a constant state of fear and trauma. Orphanage director Muhammad al-Qadhi says it relies on the generosity of private donors and charity groups. But the war has devastated the economy and unleashed a humanitarian crisis, depleting savings and public resources. "We are going through a pressing need for aid for these orphans amid the scarcity of resources that used to provide for them due to the ongoing war," he said. The Foundation used to host around 350 orphans before the conflict began. Now only around one-third remain after most left for the relative safety of living with family members in the countryside.
