Yemen is also a country experiencing great human suffering since the eruption of conflict in March 2015. Due to massive disruptions in the country’s infrastructure, there is a collapsing health system, lack of clean water, and a build-up of human waste which has resulted in the cholera epidemic in Yemen.
According to the latest reports by United Nations World Health Organization: More than 500,000 people in Yemen are suspected of having cholera, warning that the disease is spreading quickly.
Nearly 2,000 people have died since the outbreak began at the end of April, the UN agency stated.
COIN is appealing to all its donors to help in this crisis
COIN is working with another Canadian NGO to prevent and cure cholera in Yemen.
