PUBLIC HEALTH & Nutrition
Good health empowers people to live a better life. We serve vulnerable children, families, and communities by teaching proper hygiene and nutrition and enhancing their health systems.
International reports on Yemen indicate that 16.5 million people are currently suffering from a lack of access to adequate health care. 11.3 million children need humanitarian assistance (estimated) 3 million people are in need of nutrition services – including nearly 2 million children under the age of five suffering from Severe malnutrition, plus 1 million people are at risk of malnutrition and need preventive services.
