ADEN: The Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen (SDRPY) launched the hygiene and environmental sanitation campaign in Aden, the temporary capital of Yemen, on Saturday to clear 3,000 cubic meters of accumulated waste using the latest machinery.
The campaign will contribute to improving the performance of the Cities’ Cleaning and Improvement Fund (CIF) to provide Yemenis with better services.
The launch was attended by the governor of Aden, Ahmed Salem Rabiee, and the head of SDRPY’s delegation, Mohammed bin Abdullah Al-Hadi.
During the launch, a memorandum of cooperation was signed between SDRPY and the CIF to contribute to improving and developing Aden.
Rabiee stressed that SDRPY is providing continuous support, highlighting that the campaign will help to prevent the spread of diseases.
He explained that the equipment the municipality has received is part of a comprehensive set that will arrive to support the cleaning sector.
The campaign includes a number of programs and accompanying events, such as the afforestation campaign, which targets cultivating 500 plants that do not consume water, and the restoration of lighting on main roads in Aden.
