Kuwait assists Yemenis

KUWAIT: Kuwait has maintained steady flow of aid for war-impoverished Yemenis whose country is witnessing a deepening humanitarian crisis. Up to 23.4 million people in Yemen need assistance, the UN Secretary General Assistant for Humanitarian Affairs, Martin Griffiths, affirmed during a recent UN Security Council session on Yemen.

Access to basic food and necessities such as medical care has become quite limited in many regions in the country, said Chairperson of the International Committee of the Red Cross Peter Maurer. Sensing the Yemenis’ dire need for help, Kuwait pressed on with its humanitarian campaign to relieve the impoverished in the war-stricken nation.
