Votre environnement de travail

In Yemen, based in Hodeidah 

 Since the conflict between Al Houthi and the Saudi-led coalition that started in March 2015, Yemen has become one of the three emergency in the world and is thus facing one of the worst humanitarian crisis, with 80 % of the population who is now in need of humanitarian aid. The context is highly challenging in regards to access to the communities despite significant needs in the country. Airstrike, embargo, high prices, etc have caused a profound deterioration of the nutitritional situation and hundreds of thousands lives are at risk. 

  Since 2012, ACF has been present in Yemen and has been scaling up its emergency intervention substantially throughout 2016. The mission is now amongst one of the largest International NGOs in the country and is recognized as one of the key emergency actors in the country.  ACF in Yemen is responding to the current crisis using a multisector emergency approach (Nutrition & Health, Food Security, WASH and Mental Health programming), and to a multiple large-scale and interconnected emergencies: conflict, food security and cholera epidemic. Along with UNICEF, ACF designed and is piloting the country’s first Rapid Response Mechanism, and is representative of the INGO community on the HCT, ICCM, Access Working Group, the HPF Advisory Board, and on the Steering Committee that manages evacuation for the humanitarian community.

 As of today, ACF Yemen is operational in Hodeida, Aden, Hajjah and Al Khokha Governorates and it is working on the expansion of its response in the North and South. ACF has been implementing its humanitarian response in Yemen addressing N&H, WASH, MHCP, FSL and Emergency/RRM. ACF Yemen is a large mission with a relatively high number of international (around 25) and national (around 280) staffs based in Sanaa, Hodeidah, Hajjah, Aden, Amman and Djibouti.

 Regarding living condition on the mission, the security situation of the country is volatile: active frontlines in Hodeidah and Hajjah Governorates; articulated political situation in Aden and an social and economical degradation in the whole country. It is still a very a high risk, deep field situation with highest level of security at all times.  Working conditions will be dynamic and demanding.

There are multiple challenges in the Country: the humanitarians needs are high, the security situation is volatile: active frontlines, articulated political situation, with often tensions, in the south and an overall social and economical degradation in the whole country. 

Although ACF can guarantee a comfortable accommodation, it is still a risky deep field situation with highest level of security at all times. The needs in the country and especially in Hodeida governorate are very high and the context is challenging.

 Hodeidah  is located by the Red Sea and temperatures can be quite high. The guesthouse is located separately from the office. The rooms are private and personal. The building is supplied with public electricity and a generator is also available. There are other INGOs present in Hodeida, though social options remain limited due to a curfew at 6PM.
