Community Services Project for Displaced Persons in (Al-Jawf - Taiz)

About the project

A need assessment conducted by CSSW showed that there is a critical situation for women and children who live in Taiz and Al Jawf governorates, particularly among IDPs. The assessment indicated that 87% of people, including children, feel sadness, anxiety, and fear because of the protracted conflict, 59% feel humiliation or disrespect by others, while 53 % feel unsafe where they settle now.
