Yemen has been rated one of the worst places in the world to raise a child and faces the worst humanitarian crisis in modern history. Thousands of families live in informal camps under severely poor conditions, where access to potable water, sanitation, healthcare and food is a daily struggle.
The lack of such basics thereof leads, in many instances, to avoidable death.
Shortly after Gift of the Givers made initial contact with Yemen in 2012, we delivered 12 containers carrying food to the ailing country.
The civil war started in 2015 and Gift of the Givers Yemen Branch has remained active in the country ever since, providing humanitarian aid to those worst affected by the strife.
Our teams work in a number of cities across the country, delivering essential aid and services, with operational bases in Hajjah, Taizz, Aden, and Sana’a.
