Saudi project to build primary healthcare center in Yemen

Saudi project to build primary healthcare center in Yemen

The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center inaugurated a project to build a comprehensive primary healthcare center in the Al-Hajrin region, Hadramout, Yemen. With a total area of 9,169 square meters, the center includes several specialized clinics for children, women, childbirth, internal medicine and dentistry, diagnostic services, immunization against infectious diseases, basic reproductive health services, primary medicines, epidemiological surveillance and response to epidemics.

It will also provide primary health services 24 hours a day to beneficiaries. The project is expected to be completed in August 2024 at a total cost of SR5,771,250 ($1.5 million).

Elsewhere, the center has continued to help those affected by the recent floods in Pakistan with the distribution of additional 995 shelter kits benefiting 6,965 residents.

Pakistan has been hit by extremely heavy monsoon rains that started early this year – in mid-June – with unprecedented floods destroying more than 1.5 million houses and drowning half a million livestock in the worst-hit province of Sindh alone.

The waters also destroyed road and communications infrastructure.

More than 30 million people were left homeless by heavy rains and flooding, which many experts blamed on climate change.
