Yemen's healthcare sector suffers a plethora of inadequacies, the consequence of significant constraints posed by the ongoing civil war.
Many hospitals lie abandoned and in ruins.
Medical services, medication and equipment are all in short supply. Healthcare professionals rely on international support to enable them to carry out primary healthcare for the benefit of patients, but the demands have become excessive since the outbreak of civil war.
Healthcare workers do their level best, but are ill-equipped.
Gift of the Givers has, therefore, stepped in to provide healthcare support in Yemen. Such support includes the provision of medication and wheelchairs to poor families. Where patients remotely based or too poor to reach medical facilities, Gift of the Givers transports patients to and from such facilities.
Additionally, we provide medical equipment, food and water to specific medical facilities, thus ensuring these facilities remain operational.
The response by Gift of the Givers includes support for both Al Khuzna Village and for medical centres and the patients they serve.
