CONTEXT OF THE MISSION:
HI have been intervening in Yemen on and off for the last 12 years, with its actions initially focused on development issues, notably through the support to the development of physical and functional rehabilitation services for people with disabilities as well as through the capacity-building of the national networks of Yemen Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs).
Since 2015, HI interventions have been adapted to the current context of conflict in Yemen. With the support of different donors, HI has been supporting two hospitals and one physical and functional rehabilitation centre in Sana’a City, building the capacities of their key staff in early rehabilitation care and psychological first aid (including specifically for children), supplying rehabilitation equipment, and directly providing functional rehabilitation care and psychosocial support to war affected people (including through the donation of assistive devices and provision of Prosthesis). In 2017, these activities have extended to new facilities in and around Sana’a.
In parallel, HI is implementing an inclusion and protection mainstreaming project, to increase the knowledge and capacities of the staff of International NGOs in the inclusion of the most vulnerable people in their humanitarian responses (including persons with disabilities), so as to increase their access to essential services.
While all HI activities have been implemented in in Sana’a governorate so far, in 2019 HI has expanded to Aden and its surrounding areas. Activities were launched and a sub-base office opened in Mokha, in 2020. While, activities are in the launching phase in Hajjah.
