Since the project's launching in 2019 with USAID support, CARE has rehabilitated 18 water and eight sewage systems across five districts under Taiz, one of the 14 governorates where CARE works. And so now over 135,000 people are benefitting from this project.
For decades, the region has faced a dwindling water supply, and challenges from the area's remarkably diverse geography -- with a hot, humid, and arid climate on one side and heavy rainfall and extreme cold on the other -- as well as the ongoing conflict in the country.
