Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) signed a deal to execute the “back to school” project in Yemen’s governorates of Hajjah, Saada and al-Bayda, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported Tuesday.
More than 7,140 individuals will benefit from the project, which will distribute school bags, tools, school uniforms, and essential COVID-19 prevention supplies such as masks, sterilizers, and awareness leaflets, to all male and female students in the governorates.
There are also 32 alternative classrooms equipped with school supplies, tables, chairs, and desks for schools that have been completely destroyed, SPA said.
“This comes within the framework of the Kingdom’s keenness, represented by KSrelief, to promote the safe and regular educational process in Yemen,” the press agency said.
KSrelief is dedicated to coordinating and providing international relief to crisis-afflicted communities.
Yemen is Saudi Arabia and KSrelief’s top beneficiary, with the center completing 618 projects worth $3,908,955,384 in the country.
