KSA's aid agency KSRelief workshop on humanitarian aid, relief

  • The contribution of Saudi Arabia to Yemen since the beginning of the crisis in 2015, in humanitarian assistance, development and relief for the Yemeni people, amounted to $11.18 billion

JEDDAH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief), in cooperation with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, hosted a workshop on digital financial aid at its headquarters in Riyadh. Digital financial aid aims to support people in need and help provide basic needs, such as food, medicine and clothing, through the use of smartphones and credit cards.
In addition to the latest strategies to help provide humanitarian aid and relief, the event also highlighted innovations that can assist with the provision of clean water and sanitation to communities in countries that benefit from the center's work.

Saudi Arabia ‘strongly condemns’ Houthi attack on Yemen UN monitors

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia on Friday strongly condemned the targeting of “UN personnel by the Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen” after cease-fire monitors came under fire.
The attack took place on Thursday in Hodeidah, where a truce agreed in talks in Sweden came into force last month.
The Houthi militia “have violated their signed commitments in Stockholm and continue to flout international law and escalate their aggression against the Yemeni people,” Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States Prince Khalid bin Salman tweeted on Friday.


The UN said one round of small arms fire struck a UN-marked armored vehicle that was part of convoy carrying chief monitor Patrick Cammaert.
The UN monitors arrived in Hodeida — the entry point for the bulk of Yemen’s imports — on Dec. 23. The UN Security Council this week agreed to expand the force to 75 monitors.
