    While all equipment and items of the bakeries that are located outside of Sana’a are delivered from Sana’a (the high quality and the availability is only in Sana’a) the following challenges and risks might be encountered:

    • Are exposed to the risk of highway robbery.
    • Difficulties of using highway roads that are not maintained.
    •  Delivering the goods from Sana’a costs more.
    • Delivering the goods through a company is recommended to deliver the goods securely.
    • The continuous increase in prices of goods and foodstuff while the value of the USD is going down.
    • Crisis in the availability of fuel as the petrol and cooking gas
    • appendices
      • Mercy Bakeries and Kitchens resumed working on 9th of July (after Eid Al-Adha holidays).
      • The individuals are served with high quality of loaves and food.
      • No issues were raised by the local authorities or the health office in all branches.
      • No change in the staff and the staff number.
      • After building a good working relationship with the tradesmen, HRD sometimes receive flour in advance from them and pay them back few days later (due to the delay encountered in bank transactions and transfer).
      • Beneficiaries are selected by a field survey done by the staff without the interference of the neighborhood leader, (noting that we don’t rely on local organizations/corporations nor the authorities field surveys). 
    • The criteria of the beneficiary’s selection:
    • Low income, orphans, displaced, widows, women with no foster, divorced women.

    Low income, orphans, displaced, widows, women with no foster, divorced women.
