Sangoel goes to Yemen

These photographs were lifted from Karen Lynn Willams's blog. Her co-author, Khadra Mohammed, took My Name Is Sangoel (which I illustrated) on her visit to refugee camps in Yemen. Here is what she wrote in the email with the images:

This little boy is 10 years old. His mom drowned when the boat they were smuggled in capsized. He is an orphan and UNHCR is caring for him under their unaccompanied minors program, his big smile melted my heart. His name is Hussain my new friend in the camp. He has been in the camp only for 6 months! He loves his book.
