Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has launched a new project to provide multi-sector emergency aid and durable health, nutrition, and shelter solutions for internally displaced people (IDPs), returnees, and the most vulnerable host communities in Al-Hudaydah Governorate, Yemen.
The project aims to meet the basic needs of 109,284 people, at an estimated cost of $2,066,805, funded by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs’ (OCHA) Yemen Humanitarian Fund (YHF), it was announced yesterday.
The project was launched during an introductory workshop held by QRCS’ office in Al-Hudaydah and attended by representatives of the competent local authorities and medical facilities.
The participants learnt about the nature of emergency interventions and permanent solutions to be implemented in eight poor districts. They thanked QRCS and the donor for this support, promising to offer all facilitations to remove any challenges to the project.
According to the OCHA’s Yemen Humanitarian Needs Overview 2023, 20.2mn Yemenis need humanitarian support to access vital health services.
