Instability and Food Insecurity in Yemen

Currently, the people of Yemen are suffering from a severe hunger crisis, which has been intensified by conflict and instability.

10.5 million people are facing food insecurity

You can help by supporting CARE's work in Yemen and other poor countries around the world. 

Country Info

CARE has been continuously active in Yemen since 1993, in projects that work towards reducing poverty. These have evolved from basic relief efforts and reconstruction after the civil war in 1994, to long-term projects.

CARE’s work in Yemen has a common focus on community self-help and women’s empowerment, including women’s literacy, water management, capacity building of local organizations, natural resource management, emergency response and relief assistance to refugees.

In addition, CARE is working in Yemen to help refugees fleeing violence in Syria.

Our Work in Yemen

Child Poverty

Half of all children live in poverty, spending their formative years struggling to survive.  

Youth Empowerment

Addressing the needs of the 1.8 billion young people in the world is critical to ending poverty.

Girls' Education

The majority of the 57 million children out of school are girls — their future is at risk.

Poverty & Social Justice

Everyone in the world has the right to a life free from poverty, violence and discrimination.

Child Marriage

Child marriage is a gross human rights violation that puts young girls at great risk.

Violence Against Women

Gender-based violence is one of the most pervasive and yet least-recognized human rights abuses.

Why Women & Girls?

Why does CARE fight global poverty by focusing on women and girls? Because we have to.

Our Vision

We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.

CARE is working to help Syrians meet their most urgent needs and protect their dignity. We are on the ground in Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Yemen and Syria, collaborating with partners and helping people displaced by the conflict and the communities hosting them. Here's an overview of the assistance we've been able to provide to date:

These Are Our Sisters

Gender-based violence is one of the most widespread – but least recognized – human rights abuses in the world. Globally, one out of three women will be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. This violence is happening to our sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters around the world.

This violence leaves survivors with long-term psychological and physical trauma; tears away at the social fabric of communities; and is used with terrifying effect in conflict settings, with women as the main target.
