A meeting in Al- Hodeidah to discuss topics related to humanitarian work.
The Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation, Ibrahim Al-Hamli, met today in Al-Hodeidah with officials of local organizations working in the governorate.
The meeting, in the presence of the director of SCMCHA’s branch in Al- Hodeidah Governorate, Jaber Al-Razhi, discussed topics related to humanitarian work, and the repercussions of the decision to halt food aid from WFP, which stopped aid under American directives.
The Secretary-General of SCMCHA, in the meeting, stressed that there are red lines such as the principles, values, faith identity, customs and traditions, and the sovereignty of Yemen.
He explained that everyone should learn humanity through fine examples and role models in Islam, and not from the West, which pays lip service to humanity, Where the simplest situations come to expose West greatly, and what is happening in Gaza is the closest example of that.
Al-Hamli confirmed the importance of paying attention to social investment as one of the types of securing continuous sources of income for local institutions, indicating that it is unfortunate to say that there are hundreds of local institutions, if support for them stopped within a year, they would stop all their activities, and could close their offices.
He pointed out not to rely on projects provided with funding from the United Nations and its agencies in Yemen, regardless of their amount today, and the necessity of searching for other donors and strengthening the relationship with them.
The Secretary of SCMCHA also emphasized the importance of developing and improving the work of organizations and moving to the stage of implementing sustainable development projects that contribute to alleviating the human suffering that Yemen is experiencing as a result of the aggression and siege.
He stated that SCMCHA seeks to localize humanitarian work and replace work in the field with local organizations, instead of international organizations.
For their part, the participants in the meeting apprectiated the cooperation of SCMCHA, stressing that they will work to implement everything proposed by the Secretary-General in order to achieve humanitarian work.
