MARIB: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) on Monday distributed 140 food baskets in Yemen’s Marib governorate among 840 people as part of its ongoing relief activities in the war-torn country.

KSRelief has provided treatment for more than 21,000 injured Yemenis, both inside and outside Yemen.

A total of 6,452 Yemenis received treatment in private sector hospitals in Yemen, while 1,000 received treatment in Yemeni medical centers specializing in eye injuries.

The center has also launched a series of courses for women in Al-Houta and Al-Musaymir districts in Lahij to train them in mobile phone maintenance, dairy production and first aid.

Sixty women have participated in these courses, which include information about how to market their skills to create income for themselves and their families, KSRelief said.

In October 2018, the center launched a vocational training program for women in Yemen’s Shabwah governorate.

The program trained 100 women over two months in four vocations: Hairdressing, sewing and embroidery, making pastries and sweets, and making perfume and incense.
