KSrelief (The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center), in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO); undertook the task of providing appliances needed to carry medical wastes and get rid of them, in a safe way, at health facilities, in Yemen.
The waste was from as many as 45 facilities, in order to protect 600,000 people from the infection; contracted from hospitals around and to secure a good healthy environment.
The move also falls within the endeavor of the Riyadh-based KSrelief to back up the health sector, in Yemen.
A total of 251,549 mines cleared since the start of the project. More than 1.2 million mines planted by the Houthis, claiming the lives of hundreds of civilians.
Masam has 32 demining teams. It aims to dismantle mines in Yemen to protect civilians and ensure delivering urgent humanitarian supplies safely.
It trains local demining engineers, gives them modern equipment and it also helps mine victims.
Last year, Masam’s contract extended for one year at a cost of $30 million.
