WHAT WE DO IN YEMEN
Cordaid has been providing humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and natural disasters in Yemen, in particular women, children, elderly, ill, and disabled people, since 2018. Our activities are aimed at saving lives through increased access to food, shelter, water and sanitation, basic health services and the distribution of medicines.
We have also responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by providing information, food, protective equipment, hygiene kits and ventilators and we provide mental health and psychosocial support.
Together with our Yemeni partner organisation Yamaan, we strengthen health facilities by training staff and by improving access to maternal health care and family planning services. Through a 24/7 helpline, social media and radio ads, we provide accurate information on reproductive health to women and girls in remote areas. Our health programme also assist chronically ill people by providing medicines and through performance-based financing we strengthened 35 health facilities in 2021.
Together with the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding, Civil Alliance for Peace and Youth Without Borders Organisation for Development we facilitated and implemented civil society-led advocacy campaigns. These campaigns influenced local, national, and international decision-makers to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the International Dialogue on Peace-building and State-building (IDPS) Peace Vision 2019-2021.
