ADEN, Yemen, Yemen's Deputy Minister of Planning and International Cooperation, Dr. Nizar Basuhaib, has launched the humanitarian response plan for 2018 in Yemen, estimated at a total of $2,962,000,000, in collaboration with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
Dr. Basuhaib expressed thanks and appreciation of all partners, including the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSRelief), and the Emirates' Red Crescent (ERC), for making the plan a success, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
The plan includes several stages, in different sectors related to the displaced, refugees, health, education, water and services, targeting 22 million people, including 11 million of the most needy.
Dr. Basuhaib stressed the need to focus relief efforts, in areas, most affected, as they are under the control of the forces and militias loyal to the coup, where the aid does not reach the actual needy groups.
