RIYADH – The International Organization for Migration (IOM) announced, on Wednesday, its agreement signing with King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), to support more Yemeni people.
The Saudi support, amounting to $ 15 million, will provide shelter, basic materials, and education support to vulnerable Yemeni communities, according to a statement issued by the United Nations.
The joint cooperation agreement was signed by Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabiah, General Supervisor of (KSrelief), and Antonio Vitorino, Director-General of (IOM).
“This funding comes at a critical time for Yemen, as the situation continues to reach new levels of deterioration, and societies across the country are struggling to survive,” the statement said.
According to the statement, displaced people across Yemen are struggling to access life-saving services, including safe shelter.
“This contribution from Saudi Arabia to support the IOM response will help us reach more vulnerable people across the country, and provide life-saving assistance to displaced families,” the organization’s director general added.
The statement emphasized that IOM’s partnership with Saudi Arabia contributed to providing vital assistance to millions of people in Yemen, including health care services and shelter.
