Two-month-old conjoined boys from Yemen flew to Jordan over the weekend to bear separation surgery, in accordance to video of their journey.
The twins, Mohammed and Ahmed, had been born Dec. 17 conjoined on the rib cage and abdomen.
Their father mentioned the household is getting worldwide remedy with the assistance of UNICEF due to the restricted assets of Yemen’s ailing healthcare system.
Yemen has been gripped by civil battle for six years, creating what the United Nations referred to as the “world’s worst humanitarian disaster.”
The boys’ 35-year-old mom works as a avenue vendor in Sana’a, Yemen’s capital, UNICEF mentioned.
The company mentioned “non-public donors” are overlaying the price of the surgery.
“Following weeks of preparations, we’re joyful that the twins are actually in a hospital in Jordan to be operated on,” mentioned Philippe Duamelle, UNICEF Consultant to Yemen, in a press release.
“[The twins] are actually within the protected palms of a group of knowledgeable surgeons. We hope to see them again quickly in Sana’a in good well being.”
