JEDDAH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center’s (KSRelief) iftar distribution program in 13 governorates of Yemen is successfully underway, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
The iftar program and other relief activities initiated by Saudi Arabia cover most of Yemen without any discrimination.
Saudi Arabia is making all-out efforts to provide relief to the war-hit civilians in Yemen. In May, the KSRelief signed a financial grant with the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) to support OCHA’s humanitarian activities in the impoverished Arab country.
All the relief activities in Yemen are part of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to support humanitarian and relief works around the world in response to UN organizations’ appeals.
The KSRelief is also actively carrying out relief and rehabilitation activities in the cyclone-hit Yemeni island Socotra.
The Saudi relief organization is working round the clock for the rehabilitation of as many as 950 people affected by the cyclone.
These efforts come within the framework of the continuous support being provided by the Kingdom to the Yemeni people on the directives of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Saudi Arabia had taken swift action in the wake of the cyclone by sending two planes loaded with relief goods to the Yemeni island.
The planes delivered equipment, medical supplies and food baskets that will be distributed to the families most in need under the supervision of the center’s staff. A medical team was also dispatched from Saudi Arabia to help the Yemeni people.
