Sana’a, 15 August 2018 – UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund welcomed the generous contribution of $4.2 million from the Yemen Humanitarian Pooled Fund to assist the most vulnerable women and girls displaced from the recent escalation in fighting in Hodeidah and western coastal areas of the country.
The funding will help to reach more than 200,000 women, girls and their families with life-saving reproductive health services, and transit kits containing hygiene items for those who are either on the move, displaced or stranded between frontlines.
In flood-hit southern Lao PDR this World Humanitarian Day, UNFPA and partners are intensifying relief efforts for affected populations, including women and girls, as the misery continues almost a month after disaster struck, including the collapse of a dam and the devastation that calamity triggered for tens of thousands of civilians in the area.
SOMALI REGION, Ethiopia—At first, Trik Dulene and her husband agreed to use family planning to enable them to raise their two daughters within the limited resources available to them as a family. But the pressure from her in-laws to abandon this path became unbearable and contributed to the breakdown of her marriage.
It was a big blow for her when her husband, the breadwinner, left her to raise her daughters alone.
SANLIURFA, Turkey – “My husband was very strict,” Gemila*, a 28-year-old Syrian refugee, told UNFPA. “He wanted to crush people.”
Gemila had been married off, despite her protests, at age 17. A few years into her tumultuous marriage, the conflict in Syria forced their family to flee to Iraq.
Eventually, the couple decided to separate. Gemila’s husband promised to give her custody of their son in exchange for all of her savings – but then he disappeared with both.
