Save the Children's Yemen response
Save the Children is targeting 1.7 million people, including 850,000 children, through their Australian Humanitarian Partnership funded response in Yemen - a country with acute and increasing poverty and coping with a large outbreak of cholera. This response involves integrated protection, education, health, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and food security programming. Cholera preparedness, prevention and treatment activities have also been integrated across the response strategy.
With three million people forced to leave their homes in Yemen since March 2015, and two million people displaced, Save the Children is working with forcibly displaced children across all sectors. Cash transfer programming is a significant part of the response particularly within the food security and livelihood sectors.
In 2017, Save the Children received $4 million through the AHP to assist in responding to the crisis in Yemen. The length of the AHP response is June 2017 until December 2018.
