MA’RIB, YEMEN: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) has implemented a number of programs to support orphans and their families across Yemen, including this year’s project, entitled “Seed of Safety”. Most recently, KSrelief’s team implemented social services and counseling sessions for 300 orphans and 50 of their family members from Ma’rib, Sana’a, Al Bayda, and Al Jawf. The project is being carried out in cooperation with the Benevolence Coalition for Humanitarian Relief (BCHR).
The sessions tackled the importance of strengthening community solidarity, meeting the needs of orphans and integrating them into society, providing advice to families and helping them to receive job skills training.
The goal of KSrelief’s orphan support projects is to improve the living conditions of orphans and their families across a number of sectors. As part of this effort, KSrelief established the “My Skills My Livelihood” initiative in 2018, which improved the income-earning capacities of these families. The “You are not Alone” project in 2019 provided additional protection and support. “Seed of Safety” is providing even more services to vulnerable children and their families.
