Yemen: 2019 ICRC activities

Report 19 January 2020 Yemen

In Yemen, the ICRC delivers emergency assistance in the realms of health care, economic security and water and sanitation. We support hospitals, primary health care clinics and physical rehabilitation centres with equipment and consumable materials. We implement water and sanitation projects in support of public institutions to ensure water is provided to the communities. We distribute food and non-food items (such as blankets and kitchen material) to internally displaced communities and populations in need. In many of our activities, we collaborate with the Yemen Red Crescent.

Through our protection programme, we visit detention centers, facilitate the release and transfer of detainees while playing the role of a neutral intermediary, restore family links by tracing individuals who have lost contact with their families, run a forensic programme to ensure a dignified management of the dead and deliver training sessions on international humanitarian law.
