The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
Yemen is the poorest country in the Arab world and has been plagued with internal conflicts in recent years. The humanitarian conditions in Yemen deteriorated rapidly since 26 March 2015 with the beginning of Saudi-led air campaign to stop the expansion of Houthi militias and their supporters towards the south of the country.
To address the recent and currently ongoing conflict the IRC has started a comprehensive package of response services will enable women and girls affected by GBV to access survivor-centered, quality care to meet their emotional, health and socio-economic needs. This comprehensive approach will fill a considerable gap in the current humanitarian response and hopefully develop a model of service delivery and risk mitigation which can be extended and adapted for other regions in Yemen.
