Kuwait to hand over Yemen's humanitarian commitments to int'l organizations
GENEVA-- Kuwait will begin handing over its Yemen humanitarian commitments to international humanitarian organizations as of this week, said Kuwait's Permanent
Representative to UN and International Organizations in Geneva Jamal Al-Ghunaim on Saturday.
Al-Ghunaim told KUNA this step was in accordance with the directives of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and Kuwait's pledge to the Yemen Support Conference called by the UN last April.
Kuwait hopes that this support will contribute to alleviating the suffering and shortage of humanitarian needs facing Yemini people in the face of imminent famine, he added.
Al-Ghunaim explained that Kuwait would cooperate with a number of international humanitarian organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) in order to halt the cholera epidemic, rebuild the health sector as well as agriculture through the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Kuwait will also cooperate with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Al-Ghanim pointed out.
