Yemen – Floods

Vooruitgang: Closed
Budget: € 80000
Looptijd: 2019-06-20 - 2019-11-29


Heavy rains in the recent weeks have caused major flash floods in 12 governorates in Yemen, forcing the displacement
of people who have lost their properties and livelihoods. YRCS deployed volunteers in the branches to support
immediate relief assistance and conduct needs assessments in the most affected communities. Many people have lost
houses, assets, and some of them have lost everything, including food and kitchen items. At this stage, the main priorities
in needs are related to shelter, essential non-food items and livelihoods. Health is also a major concern because of the
potential deterioration of the cholera outbreak in many of the affected areas Yemen – den, Marib, Taiz, Hajja, Ibb, Al
Bayda, Al Jawf, Dahmer, Rhymah, Lahj Hadramaut and
