The number of people who have been displaced and in need of housing aid reached around 2.5 million and it keeps increasing as the humanitarian situation is getting worst due to the conflict and the siege that are imposed on the people because of the war. All that led to a huge need of humanitarian aid for shelter and NFIs, especially in those areas where the clashes are expanding.
Camp Coordination and Camp Management is one of the main programs that JAAHD is implementing to improve the living conditions of internally displaced persons (IDPs) located in camps/settlements or communal settlements through integrated multi-sectorial responses. The sector facilitates the delivery of assistance and community self-governance of displaced persons in communal or camp-like settings and seeks to find durable solutions to end camp/settlement life.
Through its interventions in the protection sector, JAAHD funded by UNHCR is providing protection services and assistance to the vulnerable IDPs and host community members. This support includes social counselling, legal and psychosocial assistance, specialized protection services through individual case management, emergency multi-purpose cash support, the occasional provision of emergency non-food items as well as referral for specialized services and multi-sectoral assistance.
As an active partner in the WASH sector in Yemen, JAAHD contributes to the improvements of population health in the emergency-affected areas through the efficient, effective, and timely implementation of emergency and early recovery Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene projects targeting the most affected segment of population. It improves their access to adequate water and sanitation systems and increases their awareness and knowledge of hygiene practices.
Good quality learning requires a safe, friendly environment, qualified and motivated teachers, and instruction in languages students can understand. So, JAAHD aims to help in maintaining basic education services, particularly in areas where schools are damaged, closed, or unable to fully operate because of the conflict-related constraints. Thus, JAAHD takes serious steps towards renovating the education system mainly and directly for displaced boys, girls, and most vulnerable children across many prioritized areas in Yemen.
