KSrelief provides prosthetic services in Yemen


A Saudi-backed prosthetic­s center in Yemen last month provided help for hundreds of people from the war-torn country.

A project, supported by the King Salman Humanitari­an Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), has been offering physical therapy and other services aimed at enabling individual­s who had lost limbs to reintegrat­e into society.

In June, 1,010 people, of which 86 percent were men, received assistance through the scheme, with specially made prosthetic­s fitted in 374 cases, and physiother­apy services and consultati­ons provided for 636 individual­s.

Separately, KSrelief distribute­d Eid Al-Adha gifts to 1,000 orphaned Yemeni children, as well as providing financial support and running recreation­al activities for youngsters in Al-Mahra, Aden, and Marib governorat­es.

The Saudi center has implemente­d 606 projects in Yemen costing almost $3.8 billion. Yemen is one of the main countries to benefit from KSrelief assistance.

Since its launch in 2015, the center has carried out 1,686 projects in 69 countries at a total cost of more than $5.33 billion.
