RIYADH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) has distributed Eid Al-Adha gifts to orphans and children who are internally displaced (IDP) in Yemen.
The center is supporting the orphans and the IDP children as part of its “Their Happiness is Our Hope” project to help alleviate their suffering, according to a KSRelief statement.
It launched the projects in cooperation with the Benevolence Coalition for Humanitarian Relief (BCHR) to distribute the Eid gifts to 40,000 children across the governorates of Aden, Lahij, Abyan, Al-Dhale, Hodeidah and Taiz.
KSRelief and the BCHR signed an agreement to implement the project with the goal that no child is denied happiness during Eid Al-Adha.
KSRelief is distributing toys, clothes and other gifts to children in the war-hit country as part of the project.
Jamal Balfaqih, the coordinator for the Supreme Commission for Relief in Yemen, thanked Saudi Arabia for its commitment to the welfare of orphaned and IDP children. He said that the project reflected the Kingdom’s “generosity” to all the children of Yemen.
Local authority representatives and social services groups in the targeted governorates also praised the Kingdom’s support. They expressed their gratitude and appreciation to Saudi Arabia for standing with the Yemeni people during a difficult time.
