Safe water restored in Taizz as Yemen battles cholera outbreak
Description: Taizz City, 15 June 2017-For nearly half a million people inside Taizz enclave, water supply is the most stressful and time consuming task that parents and children endure every day. Taizz city is witnessing a relentless ground fighting and airstrikes for over two years now. The conflict has worsened the already severe water shortage in the densely populated south western city of Yemen.
Yemen is currently grappling with a cholera outbreak has infected more than 135,000 and killed over 974 as of June 13. More than half of the cases and a quarter of the deaths are children.
Safe drinking water and improving hygiene are essential in the fight against cholera. In a country where more than 14 million people have been left without access to safe water due to conflict, such restoration of essential infrastructure is key to containing the spread of cholera, both in the immediate and in the long run.

Description: Health workers are racing against time to save children from the unprecedented spread of cholera in Yemen. In just over one month, close to 70,000 cholera cases have been reported with nearly 600 fatalities. The number of suspected cases is expected to reach 130,000 within the next two weeks. The spread of the disease is turning an already dire situation for children into a disaster.
Since the start of the outbreak we’ve been working with partners to reach children and families. Our teams on the ground have provided safe water to over 1 million people and delivered over 40 tonnes of life-saving medical equipment – including medicine, oral rehydration salts, intravenous fluids and diarrhoea disease kits. We must act now to save children’s lives. Help us, help them: http://uni.cf/2rNTMtm
