Women displaced under the Corona crisis
A team from the project contacted some of the displaced women who were trained and supported by the project, to see their conditions, and their home projects to produce perfumes, incense, women's bags, accessories, etc.
In Yemen, the outbreak of the Corona virus began recently last May, and due to the bad conditions that Yemen is experiencing as a result of the war and the conflict that has been going on for six years, the health conditions are very poor, which was reflected negatively on the economic and social conditions
The team contacted some of the trainees, who complain that a large part of their projects were suspended during this month due to the precautionary measures and the quarantine to confront the Corona virus.
Trainee Ubaida sold her last product last May, and sent us some pictures of it through the WhatsApp program, but she stopped production this month, and she adheres to the home quarantine.
Obaida said that she had achieved good success during the past months, and her own project provided her with a source of income for her family, and she was selling all of her products of perfumes and incense, but she stopped now and lived in bad conditions
As for the displaced "Reham", the team contacted her on the mobile, because she returned to her previous village in Al-Hodeidah Governorate two months ago, and she left the capital, Sanaa, due to the Corona virus. Reham was a participant in the marketing and promotional program for the products of the displaced women, which the project established in November and December 2019, and continued After him producing incense, perfumes and cosmetics, Reham said that she was facing difficulties in marketing her products in Sanaa, and that her latest products took her with her to her village in Hodeidah to sell them there.
Trainee Azhar visited the team in Sana'a, Azhar was working in a shop that sells women's accessories in one of the major malls in Sanaa, and was displaying her products from household bags and accessories in that store, but the authorities in Sanaa issued a decision to close the commercial malls in Sanaa since the end of last May (As part of the precautionary measures to confront Corona), therefore, it stopped production and sale, and suffers from very poor conditions
Through the meetings and contacts that the team held with the trainees, their home projects are threatened with bankruptcy and stopping permanently. Many of the displaced who were trained and supported spent a large part of the product sales during this month, and they were unable to purchase new raw materials and manufacture new products due to the Corona crisis, and they needed Necessary to provide additional support, so that they can return to production and marketing after the end of the Corona crisis
We invite supporters and donors to respond to the displaced women and provide support and funding to them in this dangerous stage and the difficult conditions faced by the displaced women in Yemen.

We still have 280 displaced families in need of training and support, but the project did not receive new donations in the last campaign that was held last December, and the organization is trying to continue to search for new support and funding, and the project was registered in the 2020 campaign for the girls ’funding campaign, which was accepted, The campaign will start on March 6 and last for a week.
