Demolition, cleaning work in Al-Musawara district complete

EASTERN PROVINCE: The Eastern Province governorate has completed demolition, removal and cleaning work in Al-Masoura district, in preparation for a development project that is due to be finished in two years.
The general director of public relations and media spokesman of the governorate, Mohammed bin Abdul Aziz Al-Safayyan, said all 488 houses in the district were cleared, including old buildings on roads that were too narrow and posed risks to residents.
The number of abandoned and destroyed houses, an inadequate service network and lack of safety necessitated the development work, he added.
The project will include commercial stores, a cultural center, a public library, a sports complex, cafes, restaurants, men’s and women’s halls, a shopping mall, a women’s club, a kindergarten and a car park, he said.

Saudi Arabia’s KSRelief orphan project honors mothers

  • The “You Are Not Alone” project targets 420 orphans by providing them with protection, food, shelter, education and health services
MARIB: In Marib, 180 orphans presented symbolic gifts to their mothers on Saturday as part of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) “You Are Not Alone” project, aimed at protecting orphans’ families in Yemen.
The event was dedicated to orphans participating in the project in the governorates of Marib, Al-Bayda and Sanaa.
“This event celebrates the mothers to highlight their important social status and symbolism in every family and society,” said Imane Al-Zubairi, the project manager.
She added: “We aim to honor mothers to promote the value and righteousness of all mothers in the hearts of children, as they are one of the virtues of the true religion.”
The “You Are Not Alone” project targets 420 orphans by providing them with protection, food, shelter, education and health services.
Meanwhile, the center also distributed 1,200 food baskets, benefiting 7,200 people, as part of a project to distribute 102,170 food baskets, targeting nine Yemeni governorates.
This assistance comes within the framework of the humanitarian projects, provided by the Kingdom for the Yemeni people, which has so far reached 330 projects.
