For the past years, we have been working closely with our international partners to ensure the refugees remain at the heart of response planning. Watch this video to view how you contributions have helped the refugees.
A total of 175,000 liters of water was supplied to the most vulnerable families in Yemen. These have benefitted them on a large scale considering diseases such as cholera and typhoid are widespread. We hope to improve the drinking water system as well as sanitation and hygiene services, increasing access to safe water.
To alleviate the widespread poverty in Yemen, we have raised funds to distribute a total of 707 food parcels which enables each family to sustain for at least a month. Children are currently suffering from acute malnutrition, and 15.9 million do not know when their next meal is coming from.
In Yemen, there are different classifications of refugees, including asylum-seekers, internally displaced people and returned refugees. Unfortunately, what they all have in common is that they do not have a proper place to sleep. With our donors’ contribution, 700 quality blankets were provided to the homeless.
Eating hot meals is a luxury for Yemenis. When gas cylinders ran dry, it is highly unlikely that they could get a refill. Millions resort to buying firewood. There is a severe shortage of fuel due to correlated reasons. A total of 200 gas cylinders have been distributed to one of the most poverty-stricken areas.
Despite the number of children who are able to afford an education, plenty isn’t equipped with decent clothing. The barefoot school children and those who wear worn shoes or sandals were selected to provide them with better quality shoes and winter jackets. 500 shoes and jackets were trucked to the school and distributed to the targeted children.
