Description and results


March 2016 - The humanitarian situation in Yemen has deteriorated dramatically since the conflict intensified in late March 2015. Deepening insecurity and violence have taken a heavy toll on civilian lives and have triggered large-scale internal displacement and cross border population movements. Humanitarian partners now estimate that 21.2 million people, or 82 per cent of the population, require some kind of humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs or protect their fundamental rights. It is also estimated that: 14.4 million people are food insecure, including 7.6 million severely food insecure; 19.3 million people lack adequate access to clean water or sanitation; 14.1 million people lack sufficient access to healthcare; 3 million children and pregnant or lactating women require malnutrition treatment or preventive services; and, 1.8 million children have been out of school since mid-March. Numerous health facilities have stopped functioning due to a lack of fuel, supplies and personnel. In addition, solid waste removal has come to a halt in several areas and service availability is rapidly contracting due to direct impact of conflict and insufficient resources to pay salaries or maintain services. There are over 2.3 million people who have been displaced in Yemen and an additional 121,000 people who have fled the country, mainly to Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan. With GAC’s support, CARE Canada is providing emergency water, sanitation, hygiene and essential relief items for up to 12,250 vulnerable individuals in the governorate of Taiz. Project activities include: (1) rehabilitating wells; (2) constructing family latrines; (3) providing hygiene kits; and (4) distributing commodity vouchers to targeted vulnerable households.

Expected results

The expected immediate outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to water, sanitation and hygiene services; and (2) improved ability for at risk populations, especially women, to meet their basic needs. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
