Project Name:                    

Providing life-saving humanitarian aid for victims of gender-based violence in the provinces of Hajjah and Hodeida

Project Donor:

OCHA

General Purpose:

Providing life-saving aid and contributing to the improvement and defense of the rights of (2629) gender-based violence survivors and aiding the war-affected and war-survivor children who are the most vulnerable in the provinces of Hajjah and Hodeida.

Special Purpose:

  1. Delivering protection services to (2629) male and female adult and children and increasing as well as improving the government’s support for protection services.
  2. Providing the war-affected IDP children and the most vulnerable host communities with holistic child protection services (Health, legal, psychological and mental support)

Cause of Intervention:

The project was specifically designed to provide immediate support for the most vulnerable women and children groups in the war-affected areas. The provinces of Hajjah and Hodeida were targeted because they were categorized among the provinces that take priority for emergency aid response based on the 2016 Yemen Humanitarian Response Report because these provinces were below the poverty line.

Hodeida includes the most cases of gender-based violence and requires urgent interventions as mentioned in the 2015 Yemen Humanitarian Response Report.

Therefore, we have implemented this project to limit the grave violations of human rights in Yemen, provide primary healthcare and psychological support and rehabilitation for war-wounded and injured children by providing financial aid in order for them to have the necessary surgical procedures and monitor their progress.
