Advisor at the Royal Court and the Supervisor General of King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah appreciated the efforts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Nations in hosting Yemen High-Level Pledging Event 2020 , at a time when COVID-19 pandemic sweeps all countries of the world.

He stated that the pledges for this year did not match last year's numbers due to COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying various humanitarian and economic crises in many countries of the world.
Al Rabeeah said that the speakers unanimously agreed on the importance of reaching a political solution to the Yemeni crisis, as well as working to coordinate efforts to help Yemen to confront the Coronavirus pandemic and reach a better future while working to activate the three references (the Gulf initiative and its implementation mechanisms, the outcomes of the Yemeni national dialogue, Security Council Resolution 2216 ).
Al Rabeeah thanked the United Nations and the staff of KSrelief for their efforts in organizing the event.
For his part, the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock thanked the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for hosting this event.
He announced the collection of USD 1.350 billion from the countries participating in the event, stressing that the United Nations continues to support the Yemeni people.
This came during the virtual press conference held by Al Rabeeah, with the participation of the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock after the conclusion of Yemen High-Level Pledging Event 2020, which was organized by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in partnership with the United Nations in Riyadh today.
