MARIB: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) on Sunday organized a recreational trip in Marib for former child soldiers recruited by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias.

Iranian-backed Houthi militias have inflicted great damage to the country’s infrastructure, including the health care sector. To address this issue, KSRelief in coordination with Yemen’s High Relief Committee, representing Yemen’s Ministry of Public Health and Population, has developed a strategic plan to support both the public and private health sectors.
KSRelief provides urgent treatment for wounded and injured Yemenis in their country, and those for whom treatment is not possible in Yemen are transferred to Saudi Arabia and other countries in the region.
The Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen (SDRPY) continues to carry out several development projects in Yemen’s Al-Jawf governorate.
