YEMEN CRISIS APPEAL
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.
How your donations help people in Yemen
With funding from the Disasters Emergency Committee, thanks to donations from the UK public, CARE responded to the cholera outbreak in Yemen through an innovative cash-for-work programme that paid people in vulnerable and food-insecure households to work on building and rehabilitating water infrastructure. We also distributed hygiene kits, and provided safe water through water trucks. The project not only improved people's access to safe water; households in the cash-for-work programme were also able to buy food and medicines for their families.
