Agreement Date:
Mar. 30, 2020 - Mar. 31, 2022
Description:
P008963001: Yemen is currently the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with 24 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. The conflict and collapsing economy has pushed nearly 10 million people to the brink of famine, and over 3.6 million people have been displaced since the beginning of the crisis in 2015. Basic service provision is collapsing, including critical water, sanitation, hygiene and health services, increasing the risk of disease outbreaks such as cholera, dengue fever and diphtheria. Women and girls are disproportionately affected by the lack of access to essential services and face an increased risk of sexual and gender-based violence due to the crisis. With GAC’s multi-year support, CARE is increasing access to water, sanitation, hygiene and sexual and reproductive health services for up to 43,877 returnees, internally displaced people and host community members in the Taiz and Ibb governorates. CARE is also helping the most vulnerable populations, including women and child-headed households, address their basic needs through multi-purpose cash assistance. Project activities include: (1) gender-sensitive cash for work activities and unconditional cash grants, (2) rehabilitated water sources and health facilities, (3) distribution of gender-sensitive hygiene kits, (4) construction of latrines, and (5) awareness sessions and training of sexual and reproductive health services providers.
