After years of persistent conflict, Yemen is on the brink of complete economic collapse. With 80% of the population in need of dire humanitarian assistance, for many, everyday life is a struggle for survival. This is why Pure Hands chooses to work exclusively in Yemen. Our goal is to make an impactful difference by focusing our dedicated team and resources into building a long-term solution for Yemen.
YEMEN’S HUMANITARIAN CRISIS
Years of persistent conflict drove Yemen to a complete economic collapse. For over 80% of the population, everyday life is a struggle for survival. With over half the country’s health care facilities either damaged or completely destroyed, basic life saving resources are now a luxury. The numbers are startling, but behind these statistics are real people, all in the midst of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
