Nothing is harder than waking up to find your wife and children homeless. Imagine heavy rains caused serious damages to your house, your own children ran to you, held your warm hands, and heartbreakingly said, “Daddy! Where are we going to sleep tonight?!

You just imagined the painful situation this family has experienced when their house was flooded. The father had to take his children and wife to some neighbor‘s house. Then, he went back to grab some mattresses, yet the roof had collapsed all of a sudden.

“The house punched me with woods and rocks that my body had to bear them all. Having a miracle to be saved by villagers is a second life chance to me, yet I stayed in a coma. In hours of desperation, my family never thought that I would survive such a disaster. I woke up after being in a coma for 27 hours. My mother‘s tears and my wife‘s prayers were the reason behind my recovery yet my family became homeless.”

Mabruk, a thirty-nine-year-old man, has a huge responsibility for a wife and six children. He lives in Adeem sub-district in particular Masjid Adeem area in Ash Shamayatayn district of Taizz Governorate. Mabruk and his family were living in the dark side of the world, waiting eagerly to be given a hand from the other side.

And that is why RDP implemented the project of the emergency cash transfer assistance to support most vulnerable and affected households with monthly cash assistance to help them provide minimum food needs to their families.
