GlobalMedic is continuing to support families in Yemen who are living through one of the world's worst humanitarian crisis. There are still more than 24 million people, 80% of the country's population 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 a 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.
In the last month GlobalMedic has sent an additional 3,000 Family Emergency Kits and 3,000 Emergency Food Kits to support vulnerable families. These kits will provide them with the tools they need to help protect their health while dealing with the new reality brough on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
