The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center is supporting a nutrition project for children under the age of five, pregnant women and nursing mothers in the Yemeni governorates of Aden, Lahij, Taiz, Hodeidah, Hadramout, Hajjah and Marib.

The project, which aims to provide nutritional therapy, healthcare and counseling services, has helped 31,212 people in one week.

These services are part of Saudi Arabia’s efforts, through KSrelief, to alleviate the suffering of Yemenis, especially mothers and children struggling with malnutrition amid the current humanitarian crisis.

Supported by KSrelief, the Emergency Center for Epidemic Control has also provided treatment services for patients in the Hajjah governorate.

In one week, the center received 2,874 patients with various health conditions and provided them with medical services.

Yemen is among the top beneficiaries of KSrelief assistance. The center has implemented 695 projects in Yemen, costing more than $4 billion. Its programs include food security, water sanitation, health, education, emergency aid and nutrition.
