Akujang, 15

 

I was married in January last year when I was 14.

My husband is 18 years old. Im his first wife.

 

Im the eldest girl,

so it was my job to cook and work in the garden

so I never went to school.

 

I was married off I did not have a choice.

 

Im happy with my husband.

 

He treats me well.

 

My baby is four months old.

 

She is called Anipe.

 

Hunger is our biggest problem.

 

Last year we cultivated groundnuts and sorghum

but there was no rain, so nothing grew.

 

We had nothing to eat

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife, evacuations of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

But you may have one very basic question

that you can't easily find an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

You can look at maps and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States to get a sense of its size?

IfItWereMyHome.com lets you do just that.
