The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre distributed 20,000 food baskets on Wednesday to towns in Taiz after the siege on the city was broken. The project to distribute 20,000 food baskets completes the project to distribute 100,000 food baskets to the towns in Taiz and is the second convoy of relief to arrive in the city after the siege was broken. It was preceded by a convoy of medical aid provided by the centre.
Engineer Rashad Al-Okhali, an official in Taiz, praised the role played by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre to help those affected in the city that has been afflicted with disaster. He also praised the centre for carrying out a complete field survey inclusive of all districts, villages and hamlets in the city.
Al-Okhali expressed his appreciation of the roles played by the King Salman Centre’s roles to serve the Yemeni people, including the largest relief programme in Taiz which provided 100,000 food baskets, a large amount compared to what other support groups provided.
Amin Al-Haidari, the manager of this project and executive director of the humanitarian relief coalition in Taiz, thanked the King Salman Centre for breaking the siege in the city by providing air drops containing medicine and medical supplies and admitting food into areas affected by the siege in a number of different ways.
The Operations Director of the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) John Ging stressed that the King Salman Centre for Relief now holds a position of global prestige and is implementing humanitarian international law.
