Food security and sanitation for displaced families in Yemen

ACTED provides essential water trucking and cash for food to needy displaced families in Al Dhale’e governorate.

In central Yemen, Al Dhale’e governorate hosts some of the most vulnerable families who have fled conflict from neighbouring areas. With the support of  European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO), ACTED has supported 2,200 vulnerable households in Al Dhale’e governorate by providing three months of unconditional cash transfers to improve food security and WASH assistance including water trucking and hygiene kits.

ACTED also led trainings with each family on the importance of hygiene and nutrition, including a balanced diet, mother and infant feeding and proper feeding during pregnancy. ACTED also provided water trucking to 18 health facilities, which will benefit an estimated population of over 20,000 households.
