Sana'a, YEMEN

Three year old twins Hassan and Hossin (sitting on the mattress on the floor) and their two year old sister Hannan, sit tied for six hours a day waiting for their mother to return. "I have to tie them," their mother Selma Ahmed Adem says. "There are no people who can look after them, and I'm afraid that they will fall out of the window or play with the gas container when I am away. They are not able to look after themselves." Selma is a Somali refugee who works as a maid, earning around 50 USD a month, which isn't enough for the rent (40 USD a month) as well as food.
