CARE’s work in Yemen

CARE started working in Yemen in 1993, focusing on relief and reconstruction in the wake of the civil war. Today we run long-term projects to reduce poverty and promote social justice, as well as continuing to respond to humanitarian needs caused by ongoing political instability and conflict. All our work in Yemen focuses on community self-help and empowering women. We run projects on  women’s literacy, water management and natural resource management. In particular, we support the formation of women’s associations so rural women can get together to set up businesses, farming initiatives and education projects.


Starving baby crying

Intense and ongoing conflict has left Yemen on the brink of collapse. Millions of children and families – more than 80% of the population – are struggling to find the food and water they need to survive. CARE is on the ground working to save lives, but many more people need your help. Read more on our Yemen crisis page.
