While measuring a malnourished child
While measuring a malnourished child

We draw your benefactors' attention to the latest developments regarding the provision of therapeutic assistance to malnourished children and pregnant and lactating women in Yemen.

SORD standard recovery cases were recorded compared to the level of donations we received, as 42 children (23 males, 19 females) recovered.
The project also received 163 malnourished pregnant and lactating women, including 79 pregnant &156 lactating women. In addition to awareness of 389 women about the dangers of malnutrition and how to prevent it, in addition to providing awareness on how to prevent the emerging Covid-19 and the importance of adhering to personal hygiene at level of the child and mother.
At the end of this briefing, we once again draw your attention to the fact that our efforts to save children who are at risk of death due to lack of food depend largely on your generous support, which greatly helps to restore life to sick children.

Overview of Malnutrition in Yemen An estimated 7.6 million people require services to treat or prevent malnutrition, including 4.7 million who are in acute need. This includes 3.5 million people who require treatment for acute malnutrition, of whom about 2.3 million are children under age 5 and 1.2 million pregnant and lactating women (PLW). Children under age 18, especially children under age 5 and pregnant and lactating women, are the most vulnerable groups due to their physiological and biological needs. Women, young girls and boys suffer disproportionately from malnutrition. The risk of acute malnutrition increases among children in distressed conditions for example if they have been displaced or are in a situation of conflict. About 16 per cent of cases of acutely malnourished children under age 5 in Yemen live in 49 front-line districts. These children are more likely to miss out on life-saving nutrition services. Malnourished children face heightened mortality risks. Children under age5 with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) are 12 times more likely to die than their wellnourished peers. One in 5 children with SAM will diewithout treatment; this risk increases between 9 and10 times for those with complications. Children with moderate acute malnutrition (MAM), are four times likely to die than their well-nourished peers.52 Less than 16 per cent of children under age 5 meet the minimum acceptable diet in most parts of Yemen. Anaemia prevalence in children aged between 6 and 59 months is 86 per cent and among pregnant and lactating women it is 71 per cent.53 Women leaving the family home to collect food may weaken child care and result in a deteriorating nutritional status for mothers and their children. This risk is especially high in female-headed households which may not receive other support. No data is available on the nutrition situation of other vulnerable groups, including adolescents, older persons, persons with disabilities, IDPs and the Muhamasheen. However, the severity of acute malnutrition among these groups is likely considerable and may exceed that of the general population. For instance, out of 1,452 IDP sites assessed by the Nutrition Cluster in December 2020, only about half were receiving nutrition services. Sanid Organization for Relief and Development (SORD), as an NGO working in Yemen, tries its best to reduce the malnutrition rate among under-five children and PLWs in Yemen in general and in Sana'a Governorate, in particular, where this project has been implementing : " Save lives 3025 children U5yr & 1,360 PLW in Yemen". This project aims at contributing to the reduction of mortality and morbidity associated with acute malnutrition to children under 5, pregnant women and lactating mothers in the targeted areas that have high acute malnutrition rates. During the last quarter of 2020, children under 5 and PLWs suffering from acute malnutrition have been supplied with the proper nutrition supplementary. Community awareness have been raised among the pregnant women ,lactating mothers and Girls of childbearing age regarding the evils of malnutrition, both for child and mother, the importance of good nutrition for the mental and physical well-being, and how to use the available. All reached data and achievements regarding this project can be found in the attached file.

Ongoing conflict, airstrikes and restrictions on imports have left 14 million people in Yemen on the brink of famine. All warring parties and those fueling the conflict through arms sales are implicated in this man-made humanitarian crisis. The United Nations is sounding the alarm over projections that an estimated 2.3 million children under five in Yemen are expected to go hungry or be on the brink of starvation by the end of this year – half of all children in that age bracket. Yemen faces an unprecedented hunger crisis after six years of conflict, the agency warned. This is an increase of 16 percent compared to the same time last year and the highest number on record in the country. New UN data published today projected that more than 2 million children will be malnourished in 2021. An estimated 400,000 of these children will suffer from the most severe form of malnourishment - without care, many of them could die of starvation or diseases. The data also reveals that around 1.2 million pregnant and breast-feeding mothers will be malnourished by the end of the year, meaning more children are set to be born in hunger. The new figures, from the latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) Acute Malnutrition report released today by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), UNICEF (the United Nations Children’s Fund), the World Food Programme (WFP), the World Health Organization (WHO) and partners, mark an increase in acute malnutrition and severe acute malnutrition of 16 per cent and 22 per cent, respectively, among children under five years from 2020. The agencies also warned that these were among the highest levels of severe acute malnutrition recorded in Yemen since the escalation of conflict in 2015. Malnutrition damages a child’s physical and cognitive development, especially during the first two years of a child’s life. It is largely irreversible, perpetuating illness, poverty and inequality. Preventing malnutrition and addressing its devastating impact starts with good maternal health, yet around 1.2 million pregnant or breastfeeding women in Yemen are projected to be acutely malnourished in 2021. Years of armed conflict and economic decline, the COVID-19 pandemic and a severe funding shortfall for the humanitarian response are pushing exhausted communities to the brink, with rising levels of food insecurity. Many families are having to resort to reducing the quantity or quality of the food they eat, and in some cases, families are forced to do both. These numbers are yet another cry for help from Yemen where each malnourished child also means a family struggling to survive. The crisis in Yemen is a toxic mix of conflict, economic collapse and a severe shortage of funding to provide the life-saving help that’s desperately needed. But there is a solution to hunger, and that’s food and an end to the violence. If we act now, then there is still time to end the suffering of Yemen’s children. Sanid Organization for Relief and Development (SORD), as an NGO working in Yemen, tries its best to reduce the malnutrition rate among under-five children and PLWs in Yemen in general and in Sana'a Governorate, in particular, where this project has been implementing : " Save lives 3025 children U5yr & 1,360 PLW in Yemen".

The current level of hunger in Yemen is unprecedented and is causing severe hardship for millions of people. Despite ongoing humanitarian assistance, over 20 million Yemenis are food insecure, of which nearly 10 million are acutely food insecure. The Covid 19 pandemic has further compounded existing vulnerabilities experienced by beneficiaries especially the under-five children, pregnant and lactating women and  various operational challenges. According to the UN report, parts of Yemen are seeing their highest levels of acute malnutrition in children which heightening warnings that the country is approaching a dire food security crisis.

 

Drivers of malnutrition in Yemen worsened in 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic, economic decline, floods, under-funding of this years's aid response  have compounded an already bleak hunger situation after nearly six years of war.

 However, it is noted, despite these challenges, generous resources by the donors, and efforts by MoPHP, UN agencies, NGO partners and the nutrition cluster coordination team, enabled and facilitated continued delivery of nutrition services in the country including remote locations. The MOHP also highlighted several challenges (logistic, supervision, implementation of services in COVID -19, timely delivery of supplies, delay in payments etc) that were expected to be addressed during the mid-year review.

Sanid Organization for Relief and Development (SORD), as an NGO working in Yemen, tries its best to reduce the malnutrition rate among under-five children and PLWs in Yemen in general and in Sana'a Governorate, in particular, where this project has been implementing  : " Save lives 3025 children U5yr & 1,360 PLW in Yemen".

For more than five years since the eruption of the conflict, Yemeni people have continued to suffer from the severe economic decline and the brunt of ongoing hostilities. In addition, changes in the frontlines and the collapsing essential public services have taken a massive toll on the Yemeni population, exacerbating chronic vulnerabilities. The health care system continues to be a victim of Yemen's conflict where poverty, hunger and unsafe drinking water have taken their toll. The already dire humanitarian situation in Yemen has been exacerbated by successive outbreaks of diseases such as cholera and diphtheria.

With no end in sight to the conflict, the economic crisis, disease and displacement, the situation of Yemeni children and families is set to worsen, with an anticipated 24 million people, half of them children,  (80 per cent of the population) in need of humanitarian assistance, protection and basic health care assistance.  It is further stated that 10 million people require food aid to survive and that seven million are malnourished which makes the situation in Yemen the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.

These huge needs come at a time when the health system is on the brink of collapse. Half the health facilities have either been partially damaged or completely destroyed by conflict, and health workers have not been paid in the last years. Medicines and medical equipment are in short supply. Outbreaks of epidemic and water-borne diseases such as cholera and diphtheria, and recently the outbreak of Covid-19 show how precarious public health is in the current situation.

One of the health problems is malnutrition which is really considered a critical risk in Yemen.  Good nutrition and access to adequate food remains a challenge to child survival. Consensus exists over the immediate causes of malnutrition and food insecurity in Yemen, which include poverty, illiteracy, low availability of clean water supplies, low levels of breastfeeding, and dependence on imported grain as a staple. The conflict in Yemen, which plays a clear role in aggravating malnutrition, has

 

escalated dramatically since nearly five years ago and is compounding an already severe protracted humanitarian crisis. So, conflict and insecurity remain the main drivers of food insecurity and malnutrition that have pushed the most vulnerable households to the brink of famine.

With a vital role, SORD raised its project which is entitled: " Save lives 3025 children U5yr & 1,360 PLW in Yemen". The proposed project aims at contributing  to the reduction of mortality and morbidity associated with acute malnutrition to children under 5, pregnant women and lactating mothers in the targeted areas that have high acute malnutrition rates. During the first quarter of 2020, children  under 5 and PLWs suffering from acute malnutrition have been supplied with the proper nutrition supplementary. Community awareness have been raised among the pregnant women ,lactating mothers and Girls of childbearing age regarding the evils of malnutrition, both for child and mother, the importance of good nutrition for the mental and physical well-being,  and how to use the available resources In order to overcome or reduce malnutrition.
