The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) signed on Tuesday a joint cooperation agreement with the World Food Program (WFP) to improve food security for the most affected families in some areas of Yemen. This agreement will benefit 2,333,333 individuals at a cost of $40 million to prevent famine and malnutrition.
The agreement was signed by adviser to the Royal Court and Supervisor General of KSrelief Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah and Executive Director of the WFP David Beasley.

The project will be completed within six months.
Dr. Al Rabeeah affirmed in a press statement that Kingdom has reached a pioneering role in global relief and humanitarian work. Throughout its history, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has extended the hand of support to brotherly and friendly countries based on its belief in the importance of humanitarian work. Dr. Al Rabeeah stated that the Yemeni people's humanitarian needs are a priority for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and that the Kingdom is the largest supporter and financier of humanitarian response plans for Yemen.
Dr. Al Rabeeah also noted that Saudi Arabia's support covered all humanitarian sectors, and helped the UN and its agencies provide decent livelihoods for millions of Yemenis, adding that this agreement with (WFP) would contribute to the provision of food security for families most in need in Yemen.
