This gift in action
Jasmine lives in Yemen. Thanks to a 'Train a healthworker' gift from Oxfam Unwrapped, she’s receiving practical training in midwifery at the local hospital twice a week. It’s a life-changing gift – not just for Jasmine but for all the women in her community.
"When I started to see other girls getting involved in the training, it encouraged me to go. Three other girls attend this course from my community. If I weren't here, I would be waiting to get married."
Jasmine attends a course at Sayoun General Hospital two days a week. Now she's looking to the future and wants to take her newfound skills, and confidence, back to her community.
"My community really need healthcare and education. With the skills I'm learning, I'll be able to help my community. Just by attending the course, I've encouraged more girls to come and learn new skills."
