The humanitarian crisis in Yemen remains the largest and one of the most volatile in the world. Humanitarian needs across the country are driven by ongoing conflict and displacement, the economic crisis and collapsing public services.
Displaced persons targeted by this project are those fleeing conflict and currently residing in the Amanat Alassima, Sana’a, Dhamar, Al-Baydah, and Marib governorate. The project will also target displaced and conflict affected persons with protection related activities/services.
This project will focus on establishing community centers in targeted areas to empower and promote displaced persons and host communities. Where protection teams working from community centers will identify cases of multi-purpose cash assistance, shelter (rental subsidies) and cash assistance and share it with UNHCR. Emergency cases will only be handled by the community center after approval by UNHCR in accordance with emergency life-saving standards. Up to 20 cases per month will be allocated for each type of cash (multi-purpose cash grant and rent subsidies).
In addition, the centers will provide legal and psychological counseling and in-depth monitoring of protection in areas where there are persons identified by UNHCR through dedicated monitoring teams. To effectively respond to protection, the Foundation recruited social workers in community centers to conduct case management, map services and referral paths, as well as track referrals.
To focus fully on the goals of sustainable
development and humanitarian response.
