In January 2016 Operation Mercy activities in Yemen were suspended. We are hoping they will resume in the near future.
The reputed home of the Queen of Sheba, Yemen sits at the crossroads of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Operation Mercy began working in Yemen under the name MERCYemen in 2004, focusing on poverty reduction and health education. We have successfully implemented various community development projects gaining the trust of local people and government officials.

Water for All is a multi-faceted project in the area of water supply and sanitation. Rainwater harvesting, drip irrigation, water filtration and the safe disposal of waste water are all key aspects of this project to use the limited available water in the most efficient way possible.
Our project aims to reduce the number of deaths due to acute malnutrition. We will work in Taiz through community health volunteers providing a community based mobile Outpatient Therapeutic Program and an Infant and Young Child Feeding program. Monthly food rations for families with malnourished children will be distributed alongside screening, monitoring and education.
Yemen is the poorest country in the Arab world with unemployment hovering at 35 percent. The Poverty Reduction Pilot Project aims to address the economic crisis in a village community outside Taiz, Yemen by focusing on income generation through two avenues; revolving goat loans and small business loans, both complimented with financial training and follow up visitations.
Empowering women is a major key in alleviating poverty and transforming communities and lives in Yemen. Through training and awareness building with women village leaders and within orphanages for both boys and girls we are developing strategies to both meet the needs of the poorest women and protect women and children affected by gender based violence and trafficking. This project is strategically developing integral partnerships with local and international NGO's through training and research.
