Yemen

CARE has been continuously active in Yemen since 1993, in projects that work towards reducing poverty. These have evolved from basic relief efforts and reconstruction after the civil war in 1994, to long-term projects.

CARE’s work in Yemen has a common focus on community self-help and women’s empowerment, including women’s literacy, water management, capacity building of local organizations, natural resource management, emergency response and relief assistance to refugees.

In addition, CARE is working in Yemen to help refugees fleeing violence in Syria.
