CLEAN WATER & HYGEINE

As the war in Yemen remains the largest threat to stability, Yemenis continue to face challenges in accessing basic necessities such as clean water. Around 19 million people are water insecure which is one of the main drivers of communal disease spread and poor hygiene conditions. Illnesses like Cholera and Acute Watery Diarrhea have been an ongoing danger to the health of Yemenis since 2015. More recently, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread due to a deteriorated health sector. This is why, now more than ever, hygiene matters.

Access to reach water is limited due to distance and financial burdens which prevent families from having clean water from water trucks. As a result, children have left their classrooms and have become responsible for fetching water by traveling long distances to wells for their families. Additionally, the increase of water prices has been almost impossible to purchase for the average citizen.
