Première Urgence Aide Médicale Internationale (PU-AMI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organisation. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians victims of marginalisation and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. PU-AMI relies on 30 years of field experience in 50 countries in crisis, as well as on the complementarity of its medical and non-medical expertise, to adapt its programs to each context and to the real needs of the most vulnerable populations. The association leads in average 250 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PU-AMI is providing assistance to around 3 million people in 19 countries in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Caucasus and France.
PU-AMI is currently intervening in Hodeidah Governorate, where PU-AMI is historically active since 2007, and Raymah, which is a new governorate since 2013. The core field of intervention for PU-AMI in these Governorates is nutrition using a community-based approach (OTP/SFP and community mobilization) as a strong component of the program, within health facilities, but also within an outreached approach.
