Rapid response in action
A rapid response mechanism (RRM) is an emergency response modality for delivering humanitarian aid to vulnerable people, including children, displaced by ongoing insecurity in Yemen. UNICEF works with a consortium of NGOs to help get life-saving supplies to people when they are most vulnerable. After a quick needs assessment, a team is deployed through the consortium, to provide lifesaving assistance.
Here are our latest updates from our RRM teams on the ground:
Oxfam distributed multipurpose cash transfers to IDPs in Abs this is part of the integrated package of support that is provided as part of the RRM
NRC constructed new latrines for communities helping prevent the spread of disease
Action Contre La Fame (ACF) in Aden bring basic hygiene kits to displaced families
The help and complaints desk during an RRM in Abs ensures stronger accountability to affected populations
Basic hygiene kits are delivered in Hajr a remote area in Hadramaut governorate
Through the Rapid Response Mechanism, we are providing vital hygiene kits to families in need. Often when they flee their homes they leave without the basics they need to survive and maintain the dignity they deserve. This initiative is made possible with vital support from UAE Aid and the United Nations Yemen Humanitarian Fund.
