GCC Relief Coordination Meeting for Yemen Reviews Plans in Riyadh

  • Events

The Gulf Cooperation Council’s body tasked with coordinating relief and humanitarian aid provided by member states to Yemen held a meeting on Friday in Riyadh in the presence of representatives from the British International Development Ministry.

Abdullah Al Ruwaili, who is the GCC Office of Humanitarian and Relief Assistance Coordination Chairman and King Salman Humanitarian Aid & Relief Centre representative, made clear that the meeting is aimed at demonstrating KSRelief and Coordination Office dedication to realizing outcomes of the Gulf-British summit held in Bahrain recently.



For his part, Yemen’s Local Administration Minister Abdul Raqib Fatah – also national Relief Minister – gave an inclusive presentation about the current humanitarian situation in Yemen.

Fatah appreciated the announcement made by the Saudi-led Arab Coalition to provide $1.5 billion to fund the UN Humanitarian Response Plan of 2018. The plan’s total cost is estimated at $2.95.

The meeting touched upon what has already been offered by the GCC this year and efforts planned for the upcoming period.

On the other hand, the British side voiced willingness to cooperate with the GCC’s office to ensure access of relief assistance to all Yemeni regions.

KSRelief had distributed aid to civilians in Yemen trapped by mines or targeted by missiles fired by Houthi militias.

The aid fell within the framework of the Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Operations (YCHO). It included help with shelter as well as 300 packets of dates, benefiting 1,000 people in Ma’rib governorate.

The center is helping to fight dengue fever by distributing food baskets to medical staff and needy families in the Mukalla region in Hadhramaut, where some 600 affected individuals and families have benefited from food rations.



The aid is the first stage of the campaign to fight dengue fever, which includes the distribution of 49,000 food baskets in the province.
