Water is a lifeline we often neglect when received in abundance. Yemen remains one of the most water-scarce countries globally. Conflicts have had a strong impact on access to water and adequate sanitation services.
The WASH sector (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) in Yemen faces serious water scarcity challenges. The situation worsens due to high population growth, urbanization, insufficient funds, and lack of technical capacity.
According to the UN, roughly 18 million people urgently need WASH assistance as it remains crucial for good health and livelihood. Diarrhea, cholera, and COVID-19 are among the heightened risks Yemenis face in the desperate need of adequate hygiene and water resources.
On top of Yemen facing medical, food, and orphan issues, a looming fuel crisis in Yemen compounds many challenges. In places without wells or water tanks, trucks are the only way to water access. Only one-third of Yemen’s population is connected to piped water, which makes sanitary water provision more important.
Through the program, Yemenis can now enjoy clean water. Consequently, the rate of waterborne and hygiene-related diseases has gone down. More lives are saved through the initiative.
