ADEN, Yemen: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) is continuing to provide urgent support to Yemeni orphans in the governorates of Al-Mahra, Aden and Marib.

In April, the center organized 3,000 services, covering psychological and community support, healthcare and maintenance payments. The services helped 1,000 people in the targeted governorates, 55 percent of whom were male, 45 percent female, 75 percent local and 25 percent with internally displaced status.

It comes as part of the Kingdom’s humanitarian projects, represented by KSrelief, to protect Yemeni orphans, empower them, provide them with care and improve their living conditions.

Meanwhile, KSrelief continues to implement its spraying campaign for disease vector control in Yemen’s Aden governorate. The campaign, organized in cooperation with the World Health Organization and the Yemeni Ministry of Public Health and Population, will run for 12 days.

Dr. Ali Al-Walidi, undersecretary of the Ministry of Public Health and Population for primary healthcare, praised the efforts of KSrelief in supporting the health sector in Yemen and protecting the Yemeni people from disease.
