Saudi Arabia: We have provided more than $11 billion to support Yemen in 3 years

Saudi Arabia has provided more than 11 billion dollars to support the economy and refugees in Yemen over the past three years, Riyadh announced Friday night.

The director general of King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Action (government) Abdullah al- Rabi’ah made the remark at a conference held in Saudi Arabia today to review the volume of humanitarian assistance provided by the Arab coalition countries to Yemen.

Al-Rabi’ah said Riyadh alone has provided more than $11 billion to support Yemen's economy, humanitarian aspects and Yemeni refugees, both in Saudi Arabia, Djibouti and Somalia, and internally displaced persons within the country in the past three years.

He explained that the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian action alone has implemented 277 projects in Yemen worth more than $1 billion and $600 million.

He pointed out that the Arab coalition countries (led by Saudi Arabia) have implemented in three years projects in Yemen amounting to about 17.6 billion dollars to support the economy, education, fuel, and humanitarian assistance, without details on individual countries.

"The assistance provided by the Arab coalition countries to Yemen is focused on reviving the economy and trade in Hodeidah Province (western Yemen) and supporting government facilities, fuel, and public services, especially the health and food sectors," he said.
