Saudi aid agency continues health, food projects in Yemen

The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center is supporting a nutrition project for children under the age of five, pregnant women and nursing mothers in the Yemeni governorates of Aden, Lahij, Taiz, Hodeidah, Hadramout, Hajjah and Marib.
The project, which aims to provide nutritional therapy, healthcare and counseling services, has helped 27,157 people in one week.

These services are part of Saudi Arabia’s efforts, through KSrelief, to alleviate the suffering of Yemenis, especially mothers and children struggling with malnutrition amid the current humanitarian crisis.

KSrelief also continues to distribute aid to displaced people in several Yemeni governorates, with 11 trucks carrying 850 food baskets, 3,938 winter bags, 240 shelter bags, and 240 tents crossing the Wadiha border in six days.

The distribution comes within the framework of humanitarian and relief efforts being provided by KSrelief to Yemenis.

Yemen is among the top beneficiaries of KSrelief assistance. In total, the center has implemented 644 projects in Yemen for a total cost of more than $3.92 billion.

In Sudan, the center distributed 30 tons of food baskets to people affected by the floods and to the most-needy families in several areas of River Nile state, benefiting 6,000 individuals.
