JEDDAH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) signed an agreement with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Monday for a health care project that will benefit millions of people in Yemen.
The agreement was signed by KSRelief General Supervisor Abdullah Al-Rabeeah and the head of the ICRC in the GCC Yahya Al-Oleibi in Riyadh.
The project aims to ensure continuity of care and access to high-quality services for those injured in Yemen, as well as sustainable support of both primary and emergency health care and physical rehabilitation services.
In a press statement after signing the first agreement between KSRelief and the ICRC, Al-Oleibi expressed his thanks and appreciation to KSRelief for its efforts, saying the agreement was proof of the center’s commitment to the humanitarian principles of impartiality, independence and fairness.
“The aim of this partnership is to ensure the continuity of health care for patients before and after being hospitalized, and physical rehabilitation as well, to benefit more than 3.5 million Yemenis.”
The director of the community support department, Abdullah Al-Ruwaili, said that, since its inception, KSRelief has been in touch with the world’s leading experts to stay abreast of the latest developments in humanitarian aid.
“Today, KSRelief added the ICRC, which is considered one of the world’s most prestigious humanitarian organizations, as one of its partners,” Al-Ruwaili said. “Its main aim is providing assistance to the injured and afflicted, particularly in armed conflicts.”
