YEMEN: LIFE IN THE GRIP OF THIRST…


The social crisis in Yemen significantly disrupts the functioning of the country. The people who are most affected by the current conditions are also struggling with another problem, and that is thirst...

Disruptions in access to safe food and public services, especially in the economy, make the living conditions of the people much worse. Moreover, it is estimated that 80% of Yemen's people need humanitarian assistance. This reveals the gravity of current living conditions.

While the repercussions of the long-standing social crisis continue, access to clean water opens a whole new front. Migration within the country makes living conditions in regions with inadequate underground resources much more difficult. Crowded communities forced to leave their homes cause local residents to feel pressure.

Following the developments in Yemen closely, International Blue Crescent Foundation (IBC), in collaboration with IDRF Canada, took action to offer a permanent solution to this situation. IBC which has previously carried out activities in this direction within the country, did not forget other regions in need of assistance. In collobration with IDRF Canada, has activated water wells in Al Jisr, Kadmat, Markhoda, Aslan, Khamila, Bir-Al Sheikh, Khabat Al-Sloum, Khabat Al-Sabkha and Kadmat Al-Feesh regions.

Al Jisr and Markhoda wells became a lifeline for the people of Yemen...

Families living in Al Jisr, the region where the first step of the well construction was taken, are struggling to survive in the grip of poverty. Families in the region, who also has housing difficulties due to weather conditions, began to meet one of their biggest needs with great joy with the well opened here. Complaints and difficult situations faced by approximately more than 3 thousand families living in the area where the Kadmat Al-Feesh and Markhoda wells were opened are not very different from each other, but the most important issue that brings them all together is: lack of water… IBC, which took action to open separate water wells in both regions and continues its work together with IDRF Canada, became the hope of the people living here with the helping hand it extended.

Kadmat Al-Feesh and children receiving water from wells opened in different parts of the country…

Activities of IBC within the country continued unabated in other regions. With the support of IDRF Canada, built separate water wells in areas where there are more than 2 thousand families struggling with great poverty and in need of many humanitarian aid as well as shelter.

As IBC, we will continue to support people who need help and work with all our strength to make their lives easier.
