Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilian victims of marginalization and exclusion, or those hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapse by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads on average 200 projects a year in the following sectors of intervention: Food Security, Health, Nutrition, Construction and Rehabilitation of infrastructures, Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Economic Recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 6 million people in 22 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.
Humanitarian situation and needs:
Yemen is one of the 30 poorest countries in the world with 54% of the population (2014 est.) living below the poverty line on less than two dollars a day. In parallel, since 2011 and the Yemeni revolution, the State is facing major humanitarian challenges. The transitional process failed to provide sustainable peace in the region. The country is now divided in two, with northern Yemen being under severe stress to provide for its population. In March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition began airstrikes in support of southern based pro-government forces, leading to a very unstable situation and dire humanitarian needs.
The armed conflict has spread rapidly throughout much of Yemen since mid-March 2015, with devastating consequences for civilians. Two years of violence has led one of the world’s poorest countries into chaos. Around 70% of the population, or 18.8 million people, now depend on humanitarian aid (OCHA); 2.8 million people are displaced; Dozens of schools and hospitals were the target of attacks; 17 million Yemenis are food insecure and 3 million children and pregnant or lactating women are acutely malnourished. The lack of access to safe drinking water and sanitation also affects 14 million people. 14.8 million people have no access to health care. A generation of Yemeni children is at risk, as nearly 2 million children do not have access to education because of conflict, poverty and discrimination. Yemen has turned into the number one humanitarian crisis in absolute numbers of people in need.
Our action in the field:
PUI has been present in Yemen since 2007. From 2007 to 2011, PUI supported the primary health system in Hodeidah Governorate. After a one-year stand-by in 2011 due to security reasons, the mission re-started in July 2012 with a nutrition project focusing both on emergency response and a longer term community-based approach in Hodeidah and extended its activity in Raymah Governorate.
Since the beginning of the current crisis in 2014, PUI has progressively developed a core field of intervention based in an integrated approach in order to contribute to tackle one of the main issues faced by the conflict affected population in Yemen: acute malnutrition and access to health care. The integrated approach currently includes:
– The direct provision or the support to Primary Health Care (PHC) services, including Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI), Sexual and reproductive Health care (SRH) Antenatal and Postnatal Care (ANC & PNC), Vaccination, Health and hygiene Promotion.
– The management of Outpatient Therapeutic Programs (OTP) and Supplementary Feeding Programs (SFP) for Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) and Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) cases.
– The support to standard safe Water, Sanitation and Hygiene services in Health facilities
– The management of General Food Aid and the distribution of Food Baskets for households with SAM cases.
In May 2017, PU-AMI also started being a part of the Emergency Cholera Response in Hodeida and Raymah through the set up or Oral Rehydration Points and support of one Cholera Treatment Centre in Raymah, and as a partner of an early warning system.
PUI will also position itself in influencing positions, through effective participation to clusters and sub-clusters (nutrition; food security and livelihoods; WASH) and working closely with relevant government departments (MOPIC; MoPHP).The mission will explore opportunities for geographical expansion through developing and clarifying expansion criteria beyond the current Governorates and District.
In 2018, PUI continues to concentrate its intervention in 6 districts of Hodeida and 3 districts of Raymah.
