Bushra Aldukhaniah, a Yemeni CARE staffer, shared her horrific tale of fleeing airstrikes in her native Yemen on stage at the Women in the World Summit. “I cannot forget that day, that feeling, the bitter feeling of leaving home behind, leaving everything behind,” she said.  “My son was saying, ‘Mommy, can I take my toys with me?’ I said, ‘I don’t think there’s time. Let’s just run for our life.’” Read the story and see the video of the panel here.
