A delegation from the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) was in New York on Tuesday to enhance the efficiency of humanitarian action and raise the capacities of affected and needy peoples.
The delegation participated with the Permanent Mission of Saudi Arabia to the UN in the meetings of the humanitarian affairs section of the UN Economic and Social Council, which are held annually.
The center was represented by spokesman Dr. Samer Al-Jatili, and Director of Partnerships and International Relations Dr. Yahya Al-Shammari.
This year’s meetings dealt with topics focused on making humanitarian action more systematic and coordinated.
Earlier, Saudi Arabia’s UN Ambassador Abdallah Al-Mouallimi met the delegation of KSRelief to discuss the delegation’s participation in the Council.
On Tuesday, a relief convoy of 15 trains from KSRelief moved from Jazan, targeting the people of the governorate of Hodeidah with basic foodstuff and medicines.
The head of the emergency relief department at the center, Fahad Al-Osaimi, said the convoy was carrying 284 tons of basic food baskets and 95 tons of medicines.
