Humanity & Inclusion in Yemen 

Humanity & Inclusion operated in Yemen from the early 2000s up to 2012, focusing on physical rehabilitation. Our mission has grown since returning in 2014. 

Today, we provide direct services to individuals affected by the ongoing conflict, particularly people with disabilities, through rehabilitation care and psychosocial support at eight public health facilities in and around Sana’a city. 

Our teams work to ensure that injured Yemenis and people with disabilities have access to urgent and qualitative rehabilitation services in Aden and Abyan governorates.

Our Current Work

Since returning to Yemen, Humanity & Inclusion’s team of 124 staff members works diligently to:

Rehabilitation

Fixed and mobile disability teams provide rehabilitation to people with disabilities and those injured in conflict, as well as mobility devices, orthoses and prostheses, and psychosocial support. Staff provide physical therapy to people who have had limbs amputated and need to learn to use artificial limbs, as well as people with injuries such as complex fractures that could result in a permanent disability due to prolonged periods of inactivity.

Victim Assistance

Humanity & Inclusion is providing support to survivors of landmines and explosive remnants of war, people with disabilities, including refugees, internally displaced persons, and other vulnerable groups.

Food Security

Our teams are providing food security in Yemen through the provision of multipurpose cash grants.

Risk Education

Risk education teams teach people in Yemen about the dangers posed by explosive remnants of war. In particular, children are taught how to identify and avoid ordnance.
