KSrelief Center set to deliver 12 thousand food baskets to Taiz, SCR chief says
King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid (KSrelief) is set to deliver 12 thousand food baskets to Al-Wazi'iyah, Al-Qahirah, Salah and Saber Almawadem districts of Taiz, the chief of the Supreme Committee for Relief Abdurraqeeb Fatah said.
Fatah who is also the Minister of Local Administration made the remarks during a meeting with Taiz governor Ali al-Maamari in a meeting Thursday. Fatah said the SCR facilitates for all donors the delivery of their aid to their intended destination anywhere in Yemen.
"The coup militia's continuous interception of aid convoys on the points of entry of Taiz has contributed largely to the deterioration of the humanitarian situation," Fatah said.
Fatah said: "The SCR has contacted the UN organizations asking them to find alternative routes to deliver humanitarian aid to Taiz – routes alternative to the Hodeida seaport where the Saleh-Houthi militias confiscate the aid bound for Taiz" right upon arrival
The SCR chief said he has repeatedly called on the UN to use the government-controlled seaports instead of the Hodeidah and Saleef seaports to ensure that aid arrive for the intended beneficiaries.
The coup militia, he said, have seized more than 63 ship loads of aid in the seaports and more than 530 trailer loads of aid in the entry points of the would-be beneficiary provinces - government-controlled ones.
