UNHCR in Yemen Appreciates Saudi Arabia's Efforts towards Displaced Yemeni People
The Representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Yemen Jean-Nicolas Beuze expressed his thanks and appreciation to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, represented by King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), for the generous support for refugees and internally displaced people in Yemen and abroad.
In a message addressed to KSrelief, Beuze said that with the escalation of the Yemeni crisis due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the latest donation of KSrelief came as an unsurprising gesture that contributed to helping 1,400,000 displaced people and providing shelter and food supplies for thousands of needy families.
He added that during the 2020, the world suffered economically due to the pandemic. However, Saudi Arabia showed its solidarity and support for the Yemeni people, stressing that the UNHCR throughout the years received support from the Kingdom in addition to providing humanitarian aid for displaced people.
