We’re happy to announce that the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation (YRRF) has published research in the Global Security: Health, Sciences, and Policy Journal — authored by Ann Marie Kimball, our Board Member, and Aisha Jumaan, our Founder.

The research covers the challenges of delivering aid in Yemen — an active conflict zone with the largest man-made humanitarian disaster, the largest cholera outbreak in modern history, and one of the highest COVID-19 mortality rates in the world.

The research presents a case study of the YRRF and discusses how the foundation has been successful in providing humanitarian relief in a conflict zone. Through literature review, the research compares and contrasts YRRF’s strategy with policy guidance for the humanitarian sector to identify the advantages and vulnerabilities of this unique innovative approach in an area of ongoing armed conflict. The case study describes YRRF’s history, mission, methods, and metrics used to characterize the effectiveness of its strategy and projects in Yemen.

Read the full research on the Global Security Journal website.
