Solidarités International recruits 01 FIELD COORDINATOR
Desired start date: 20/06/2019
ABOUT THE MISSION …
After three years of conflict, Yemen experienced a collapse of its economy and public services’ provision. Human losses directly caused by the armed conflict are dramatic, and in particular the amount of civilian casualties. In addition, the indirect impact of this conflict is beyond imagination with 22 million of people considered in needs of humanitarian assistance (around 70% of the total national population) and the biggest known cholera outbreak in the modern history (1,020,179 suspected cases registered from April 2017 until January 2018).
In late 2017, the situation worsened again with two major events: In November, the coalition imposed a total blockade on Yemen. Taking into account that Yemen imports about 90% of its staple food and nearly all its fuel and medicine, this blockade caused a massive inflation of vital supplies’ prices and led 8.4 million Yemeni people on the brink of famine. In December, heavy fights within Saana city ended up with the death of Saleh and led to an increase of coalition’s airstrikes and frontlines’ activities as Hadi’s government tried to benefit from the confusion in Sanaa to gain territory.
Furthermore, the political vacuum created by the armed conflict in the city of Aden between southern forces led by STC (Southern Transitional Council) and Hadi’s Presidential Guard Units at the end of January 2018, hampered even more the state services provision. Nonetheless, the recent ceasefire agreed between parties end 2018/beginning 2019, and more or less respected, provide a window to access to most vulnerable and hard to reach peoples.
