TV program on Yemen reconstruction

RIYADH: A new weekly program entitled “Yemen After the Storm” will begin Monday at 9 p.m. on Tabah Saudi television to be aired from Madinah and will last for 30 weeks.
“The program will be a medium for Yemenis and Saudis to extend their gratitude to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman,” Mohsin Shaikh Al-Hassan, the program host, told Arab News.
The initiative to thank the Saudi monarch was initiated by Al-Hassan himself, who said that the message of thanking the king would be done during the program.
Prominent Yemeni and Saudi nationals have been invited as guests “to talk on how to rebuild Yemen after the storm.”
One of Yemeni guests is Alexander Al-Asabahi who will talk about the role of the media to educate the citizens about their country after the war.
“He will talk about their concerns not only about their safety but also how to rebuild their country which greatly suffered in the wake of the conflict,” he said.
He said Al-Asabahi will make an appeal to rich people —Yemenis, Saudis, among others — to contribute to the reconstruction effort by donating money.
Another guest will be Faisal Al-Awabi, a poet and author of books on Yemen. “He will likewise ask the rich to contribute to the humanitarian cause so that Yemen could stand up again and the Yemenis live a normal life,” he said.
Prominent Saudi nationals will also talk on the occasion. Abdul Mohsin Al-Hokair, also known as “Emperor of Touism,” will encourage Yemenis to help in the reconstruction.
