In 1986 Jackie Saleh’s three children were abducted by her ex-husband and taken from Cardiff to Yemen.
It took Jackie 15 years of searching before she got in contact with them again. One of her daughter’s unfortunately died in childbirth. Another cannot be contacted. But her daughter Safia, is now living in a war zone and desperate to come home to Wales.
Safia is a British citizen but the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have said there are no evacuation procedures in place and they can’t provide any assistance to help British nationals in Yemen.
Safia's living conditions in Yemen
That means it’s up to us. We need to raise £6000 to pay for the flights and costs of getting Safia out of the Yemen and back to Cardiff. There is only one flight out and it is very expensive. The plan is for Safia and her children to fly to Egypt. From there they can visit the British embassy to get new passports. Then they can fly back to Cardiff.
Losing her children like this is every mother’s worst nightmare. Please donate generously so that Jackie and her daughter Safia can finally be reunited.
