Supporting Families in Yemen

By Jamie Cross | Emergency Programs Manager

GlobalMedic is continuing to support families in Yemen who are living through one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. There are still more than 20 million people who are in need of humanitarian assistance. Food insecurity, lack of access to clean water, the ongoing cholera outbreak, and the damage to so much of the country's infrastructure have left families in an incredibly precarious situation.

It is vital that people continue to receive support in the health, water and sanitation sectors during the pandemic to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible.

GlobalMedic has been continuing to distribute Family Emergency Kits in Yemen. Each kit contains a water purification solution. This is a key tool for families to ensure they have consistent access to safe, clean drinking water and are protected from contracting water-borne diseases. 

The FEKs also contain essential hygiene items like soap. Proper and frequent hand washing is one of the easiest and most important ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and access to soap will allow families to take that step in protecting their health.

To help address food insecurity, we also pack and distribute Emergency Food Kits. These kits contain a mixture of dried pantry staples like rice, lentils and chickpeas. The kits are designed with the input of local partners to ensure the contents are both nutritious and culturally appropriate.

We just sent another sea container filled with Emergency Food Kits and Family Emergency Kits to support families affected by the ongoing conflict as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, we have just moved thousands of face shields in effort to support health care facilities that are struggling to meet their PPE needs during the pandemic.
