“Christmas In Yemen” – This Street Artist Reminds Us That These Children Are Living A Real Hell
For his Christmas In Yemen project, the street artist Igor Dobrowolski mixes Christmas photos with images of the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, to remind us that these children are living a real hell. One child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen, and during the conflict, at least 4,600 civilians were killed, more than 8,000 civilians were injured, and more than 1,200 children were killed.
These impactful collages on the walls of Berlin, want to remind that while we celebrate Christmas, thousands of children suffer a great humanitarian crisis in the general indifference. The Christmas in Yemen project seeks to raise public awareness about this conflict surrounded by violations of international law, while food and medicine are blocked, and vital supplies will run out in a few weeks.
“I made Christmas billboards to spark a light on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen which become hell on Earth,” he explained.
