Yemen Emergency 

Nine years of war have left no aspect of life in Yemen untouched.

17 million people go hungry each day in Yemen. And with a health system that has essentially collapsed thanks to more than eight years of conflict, cholera outbreaks, and the COVID-19 pandemic, families are in urgent need of support.

Nearly 4.5 million people have lost their homes in the conflict and have nowhere permanent to live, posing significant challenges and risks to families forced to live without enough food, water, healthcare, or other essentials.

Women and girls are among those most vulnerable, as the devastating effects of conflict heighten existing inequalities. The conflict, intense deprivation, and lack of services have left many women in charge of providing and caring for their families with little education, vocational training, or sources of income.

In the past year, CARE has provided emergency support and assistance to more than 2.5 million people enduring this ongoing crisis.

Please give now to CARE Australia’s Global Emergency Fund to provide lifesaving support to families all around the world enduring crises like this.

How CARE and our partners are helping the people of Yemen

CARE and our partners have reached millions of people in Yemen with lifesaving food, water, COVID-19 hygiene kits, and other critical aid.

CARE has worked in Yemen since 1993 and is one of few international aid agencies braving the conflict and continuing to deliver humanitarian aid under extremely challenging circumstances. We help people in some of the hardest-hit and most hard-to-reach areas.

Working with local partner organisations, we are distributing food as well as vouchers and cash so people can buy essential supplies while supporting the local economy. We are helping women and young people earn an income, and rehabilitating maternity wards so women can give birth safely.
