JEDDAH: The Muslim World League (MWL) has launched its second urgent relief campaign to help Yemeni refugees in the governorates of Marib, Al-Jawf, Shabwah, Abyan and Hajjah, as part of the UN’s 2018 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan, which seeks $2.96 billion to provide life-saving assistance to 13.1 million people this year.
This campaign comes within the framework of the comprehensive programs implemented by the International Association for Relief, Care and Development (IARCD), an affiliate of MWL for the purpose of alleviating the suffering of the people of Yemen, and covering the needs of the displaced people and refugees.
The secretary-general of the IARCD, Abdul Aziz Sarhan, said the campaign includes the distribution of 5,000 food baskets among Yemeni refugees in the governorate of Hajjah. “The campaign also seeks to distribute 3,000 food baskets in the three remaining governorates, whereas 1,200 baskets will be distributed in Al-Jawf,” he said.
Sarhan pointed out that the MWL provided relief and health assistance to the neediest people in Yemen, amounting to SR102,855,293 ($27,425,520.47) from which more than 2,361,398 people have benefited. He stressed that the league would implement many humanitarian projects to support the Yemeni people in all Yemeni governorates.

UAE body lauds Saudi Arabia’s efforts at enhancing security

  • “The Kingdom acts as a safety net for the Arab and Islamic worlds,” says Federal National Council chair

JEDDAH: A prominent member of the UAE Federal National Council (FNC) has praised the Kingdom’s efforts at enhancing security and development.

Amal Al-Qubaisi, FNC chairperson and speaker, met with members of the Saudi Shoura Council during a delegation visit to the UAE headed by Ahmed Al-Ghamdi, deputy chairman of the Saudi-Emirati Parliamentary Friendship Committee.

Al-Qubaisi reiterated that unity on various regional and international issues enhances security and stability.

“The Kingdom acts as a safety net for the Arab and Islamic worlds,” she said during a meeting at the FNC headquarters in Abu Dhabi. “King Salman is a father figure to both the Saudi and Emirati people.”

Al-Qubaisi said Saudi-Emirati strategic relations are reflected in coordination efforts between the Shoura Council and the FNC and commended the work of Shoura Council Chairman Abdullah Al-Asheikh.

Al-Ghamdi said strong fraternal relations between the two countries would strengthen regional unity and counter foreign actors attempting to sow the seeds of discord.

He also reiterated that the two nations share a common history, lineage and culture.

During the meeting, the two sides discussed ways that the council and FNC could enhance parliamentary relations.

The delegation also met with the Gulf Cooperation Council Parliamentary Friendship Group, which was headed by Mohammed Al-Ameri, chairman of the FNC Defense, Interior and Foreign Affairs Committee. FNC Secretary-General Ahmed Al-Dhaheri was also present at the meeting.

Delegation members also partially attended a regular FNC session, in which they got a glimpse into the council’s day-to-day operations.
