CARE has been continuously active in Yemen since 1993, addressing poverty and promoting social justice through emergency relief efforts and sustainable development projects.
Yemen is one of the world’s most dire humanitarian crises. More than five years into the conflict, 80% of the population is in need of aid and protection. A collapsing economy and non-existent public services mean that millions are struggling to access food, water, education, and healthcare.
CARE is operational across 13 in governorates in Yemen, delivering emergency response and recovery assistance to 3.4 million people a year through direct implementation and in partnership with local and international organizations.
CARE’s work in Yemen is focused on strengthening communities’ resilience in emergencies and crisis through programming in the following areas: food security and livelihoods, women, water and sanitation hygiene (WASH), reproductive health, and women’s economic empowerment, education, and technical vocational training.
