Rapid response gives a family a lease of life in Yemen amidst conflict
“We had to move because the conflict was getting closer and closer to our district and we felt unsafe,” says Sahar.
“One night when my children and I were sleeping, there was a big explosion near our home. The sound was so terrifying and very close to us. It was at that time that I became more determined to save our lives. I collected some of my belongings and we had to leave but we did not know where to go next,” says Sahar.
Live for today, hope for tomorrow in Yemen
YEMEN Environmental and Social Management Framework
Yemen is currently battling one of its worst cholera/Acute Watery Diarrhoea outbreaks, adding to the devastation and suffering caused by the ongoing conflict.
UNICEF with support of different donors including the World Bank is responding to the needs of the affected communities in most of the high risk districts through the provision of safe water and sanitation services. Furthermore, UNICEF in partnership with World Bank is expanding the Water, Hygiene and Sanitation (WASH) programme, including the rehabilitation of water systems to strengthen the prevention of water borne diseases. The Environmental and Social Management Framework is created to ensure that WASH interventions implemented under the World Bank-UNICEF partnership do not create any negative environmental and social impact on the Yemeni people.
