Water, Sanitation & Hygiene

After more than four years of conflict, Yemen’s water and sanitation systems have almost entirely collapsed, with a total of 17.8 million people – over half the population – lacking access to safe water and sanitation. Deadly waterborne diseases like cholera have claimed hundreds of lives.

Through our water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programming, CARE is giving communities much-needed access to clean water. In emergency situations we carry out water trucking, and in less urgent situations we work with communities to rehabilitate water networks and water schemes.

We provide hygiene kits to those most in need consisting of soap, detergent and other essential items, and we conduct hygiene awareness sessions to equip people with the skills they need to combat waterborne diseases like cholera which thrive in poor and conflict-affected areas.

In addition CARE constructs latrines and sanitation facilities, restoring dignity and hygiene to those who often lack facilities.

CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty.
