DUBAI: Saudi Arabia’s relief efforts in Yemen, through the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief), continue with sanitation and medical outreach in areas of the conflict-ridden country.
The center provided, for the week ending Aug. 2, 395,000 liters of drinking water and 2,656,000 liters of non-drinking water in Hajjah Governorate as well as 100,000 liters of drinking water and 40,000 liters of non-drinking water in Saada Governorate.
KSRelief earlier this year signed a deal with UNICEF to provide safe water supplies for up to 33,235 people in the Yemeni provinces of Marib, Al-Jawf, Hajjah and Saada, and reduce the incidence of diseases resulting from drinking contaminated water.
During the same week, 502 people from Abs district of Hajjah Governorate who had various health issues were given free medical services.
The KSRelief mobile medical clinics also provided 251 individuals with medications.
KSRelief has so far implemented 684 projects in Yemen at a total cost of more than $4 billion, and is among the top beneficiary countries for the relief agency’s activities including food security, water sanitation and hygiene, health, education, humanitarian and emergency relief coordination.
