Yemen, a Decade in Crisis

Yemen faces one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Years of conflict have deepened the nation into poverty, making it one of the poorest in its region, devastated its infrastructure, and caused widespread hunger and suffering.

 

Tens of thousands of lives have been lost since the crisis began and over 20 million people don’t know where their next meal will come from.

Limited Healthcare Support

One of the biggest underlying challenges in Yemen is the lack of protection given to vulnerable populations, especially in regard to combating preventable diseases and deaths among women and children.

 

Many mothers and babies are losing their lives due to the lack of access to essential reproductive services. The lack of feeding centres to address malnutrition amongst women and children, together with the lack of health care available is only deepening the crisis surrounding essential nutrition care services in Yemen.

This includes the installation of sustainable sources of energy and solar systems to lower operational costs and expenses for the people we serve. We will also be promoting hygiene practices to help prevent the spread of waterborne diseases.
