This is our patient Ali (right). He's 18 years old, and he comes from a small village in a rural and very poor area near Mawza, in Yemen.
.
Two months ago, he was supposed to meet three friends in a field near his house. As he was late, he started running, and suddenly a landmine exploded. Usually, he is very careful while walking in the field, because he knows landmines were planted in the area when military forces withdrew, a few months ago. There are no specific signs to indicate the presence of landmines in this zone. His right leg was amputated under his knee; he already had a weak left leg because he contracted polio during childhood.
.
Since the incident, he travels one and a half hours each way twice a week to our hospital in the city of Mocha, where he has physiotherapy sessions with Farouk (left).
.
It's not okay that Ali, with his whole life ahead of him, has been subjected to such severe injuries because mines haven't been cleared from civilian areas. We're urging authorities in Yemen, and specialist organisations, to step up mine clearance operations so people like Ali can stop suffering needlessly. The large number of people we're seeing injured by landmines in this area is inexcusable - one third of the injured patients we see are children.

14-year-old Nasser stepped on a landmine on 7 December while he, his uncle and cousin were watching over the family's sheep near Taiz, Yemen. He was rushed to MSF's surgical hospital 50km away in the city of Mocha. “The bone was completely shattered so there was nothing to left to save,” says Faroukh, an MSF physiotherapist, helping him to walk in this picture. Nasser finds the crutches difficult to use as his right thumb was amputated after he was shot a couple of years ago.

“People in Rann suffer endless violence. And now they have to get back on their feet once more. How many more times is this possible?” Several thousand people have fled Rann following a violent attack on 14th January.  Yesterday, around 8000 arrived by foot in Bodo, Cameroon and we expect thousand more may come. 
MSF teams are preparing to assist 15,000 people with food, water and medical care over the coming days. Check our IGTV video to know more.

In many of the areas we work in, our patients will sadly still face challenges raising their children in difficult circumstances. However, MSF will always go where the need is greatest, working to deliver vital healthcare to vulnerable people. 
As 2019 kicked-off with fireworks and celebrations, MSF teams around the world were busy helping women safely give birth – bringing new life into a new year.
