Medical teams of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) on Wednesday performed eight surgeries to fix congenital deformities of the urinary tract in children in Yemen’s Seiyun General Hospital.
Sixty-nine children from different governorates in Yemen will undergo the surgeries. Abdul Hadi Al-Tamimi, an assistant undersecretary for Hadhramaut governorate, thanked KSRelief for supporting the Yemeni people.
He said the continuous humanitarian support provided by Saudi Arabia confirms the depth of relations between the two peoples. Beneficiaries thanked KSRelief for its services and humanitarian work in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia’s humanitarian efforts exerted through KSRelief have reached 45 countries to date, through 1,062 projects, most allocated to Yemen.
The total Saudi assistance to Yemen since May 2015 amounted to $16 billion in humanitarian and development aid, in addition to supporting refugees, providing funds to Yemen’s central bank and supporting the Yemeni economy.
