After more than five years of continuous conflict, the humanitarian crisis in Yemen is considered the worst in the world. A higher percentage of people face death, hunger and disease than in any other country and the degree of suffering is nearly unprecedented. More than 40 percent of Yemeni households are estimated to have lost their primary source of income and consequently find it difficult to buy even the minimum amount of food.
Poverty is worse than before the crisis: before it affected almost half the population, now it affects an estimated 71 to 78 percent of Yemenis.
Through the ICI project, ADRA and our partner YFCA aims to increase the food security of communities in Al-Jawf, Sana’a, Adhale’e, Abyan and Aden through the provision of cash assistance.
Beneficiaries will benefit from unconditional and conditional cash assistance, which will ensure the basic needs of each household are met and will contribute to an improvement of their resilience.
The cash assistance is expected to contribute to increasing the dignity of over 8,000 families by increasing their purchasing power and decreasing their vulnerabilities and risks stemming from a weak purchasing power.
