JEDDAH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) on Sunday distributed 6,000 cartons of meat to 108,000 beneficiaries in a number of districts in Yemens Al-Jouf Governorate.

The aid comes within the framework of food assistance provided by KSRelief to the Yemeni people.

KSReleif has also stepped up its medical relief efforts in Yemen, with three new medical teams to provide treatment without discrimination.

During his visit to Saudi Arabia, the director general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, also commended the Kingdoms leading and effective role in the region and around the world — and in particular the KSRelief.

He pointed out that the main objective of his visit to Saudi Arabia was to promote the bilateral partnership with KSRelief.

There are some 2 million Yemenis working in the Kingdom and they send more than $10 million to their families in Yemen. The Kingdom has opened certain points to enable organizations to transport relief goods to reach people in need.

To boost the economy of Yemen, Saudi Arabia has funded its Central Bank with $2 billion and another $1.5 billion has been given to UN organizations to help distressed Yemenis.
