As many 150 Somali refugees left Aden port back to their country in implementation of the Voluntary Repatriation Program initiated by Riyadh-based King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

As part of this program, KSrelief has, in 2018, managed to evacuate as many as 2,000 Somali refugees from Yemen to their country.

The Saudi center has also distributed shelter assistance to those affected by the flood disaster in Al Abr District, Hadhramaut Governorate.

The aid included 42 tents, 210 blankets and 84 rugs for 42 affected families, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

This came within framework of the continuous assistance provided by the Kingdom through KSrelief to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people during the current humanitarian crisis.

Meanwhile in Lebanon, Prince Naif bin Abdulaziz Dialysis Center, located at Makassed General Hospital in Beirut, provided treatment services for 106 patients during 276 sessions last week.

This also comes within the framework of medical projects provided by KSrelief, Saudi Arabia's relief arm, for patients and the injured in Lebanon.
