Yemen Multi-Sector Humanitarian Response Programme

Distribution of hygiene kits in Yemen

The Multi-Sector Humanitarian Response programme in Yemen ran from April 2017 – July 2021. It was led by CARE with a consortium of partners - Action Contre La Faim, Mercy Corps and the Norwegian Refugee Council. Activities included:

  • Providing cash assistance so people could buy basic food supplies
  • Ensuring access to safe drinking water and improved hygiene and sanitation facilities
  • Screening and treating pregnant or lactating women for acute malnutrition
  • Primary healthcare services for adults and children

Programme impact

During the project, CARE:

  • Provided 93,892 households with over £30 million in cash to reduce negative coping strategies (e.g. removing children from school to earn money)
  • Provided 908,000 people with WASH services to mitigate the spread of waterborne diseases. This included 699,800 who could access safe and clean water
  • Treated 37,331 malnourished children and pregnant or lactating women
  • Provided 201,800 children and pregnant or lactating women with healthcare services

This project is no longer running but CARE continues to support people in Yemen who are affected by the crisis, including through the BRIGHTLY project.
