YEMEN

INTERSOS INTERVENTION

INTERSOS’s intervention in Yemen began in 2008 to assist refugees in the Kharaz and Basateen camps. We then launched a programme to identify and support victims of human trafficking in Aden, Kharaz and in the Mayfa reception centre.
Since the outbreak of the conflict in March 2015, we are one of the few international organizations that have not abandoned the country, continuing to provide humanitarian aid to thousands of displaced persons and refugees fleeing from ongoing clashes and bombings.
Our efforts focus on providing medical and food assistance, support and organize school and professional classes for children and teenagers, psychological care and protection for the most vulnerable women and children and for the victims of abuse and violence, and support for families at risk. INTERSOS intervenes both in the north and south of the country, bringing aid to the most remote and hard-to-reach locations in the Governments of Aden, Sana’a, Ibb, Taiz, Lahi, Hudaida, Hajja, Hadramawt, Abyan and Al-Dhale’e.

CONTEXT

Since March 2015, a violent conflict in Yemen is putting at risk the lives of 21.1 million people, causing a million and 200,000 displaced persons and leaving 80% of the population in need of humanitarian aid. Since the beginning of the conflict, the air strikes have intensified, destroying schools, hospitals and airports. Water and electricity supplies are often interrupted, and medicines and fuel are difficult to find. Bombings and ground clashes make the security conditions extremely volatile and many areas are unreachable and isolated from humanitarian aid.
The Aden governorate is the area most affected by bombings and clashes between armed groups, and in this area there are more than 186,000 displaced persons.
