Since 2015, nearly 15 percent of the entire population, 4.3 million people, have been forced to flee their home; 3.3 million people are still displaced. Nearly one-third of all IDPs (Internal Displaced Person) live in the district across the country with the highest convergence of complex, and multi-dimensional problem.
Pure Hands delivered emergency assistance to internally displaced by the ongoing conflict. Assistance packages include winterization kits and non-food items (NFIs) and tents.
From the beginning of conflict, IDPs have lived under extremely difficult circumstances, and their situation is so bad that they are willing to risk their lives and return to their homes despite the insecurity there. They live in schools, but face constant pressure from the host communities to vacate them. The influx of IDPs has put tremendous strain on the already weak services. It has also burdened the host families who are themselves very poor. IDPs also face protection issues.
In 2018, Pure Hands implemented different shelter projects to reduce IDPs’ suffering, such as providing non food items (NFIs), rental subsidies, and winterization kits. More than 83,145 people have benefitted from the shelter project, with total costs reaching $99,853.
Non Food Items (NFIs) Distribution.
Pure Hands implemented the Non Food Items (NFIs) Distribution Project in Sana’a, Al-Hodeidah, Socotra, Ibb and Taiz governorates.
The Solar Systems Project was implemented by Pure Hands in Sana’a Governorate and 14 households benefitted from this project.
The project targeted IDPs, people in need, and conflict affected populations.
