Al-Hamli discusses with the United Nations coordinator ways to address the suffering of the displaced and affected people

Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation, Ibrahim Al-Hamli, met today with the United Nations Resident Coordinator – Humanitarian Coordinator, Julian Harness.

The meeting touched on a number of topics related to the humanitarian situation, and ways to enhance and develop joint action to alleviate the suffering of citizens, especially the displaced and the groups most in need in terms of livelihood, as a result of the human suffering caused by the aggression and siege.

The Secretary-General of SCMCHA reviewed the humanitarian suffering that the Yemeni people have been experiencing for nine years, especially in terms of livelihood among various segments of Yemeni society, which worsened after the decision to stop aid.

He pointed out that the continuous stopping of food aid since August of last year has exacerbated the human suffering and led to a high rate of food insecurity and cases of malnutrition among displaced people, especially children.

Al-Hamli confirmed the importance of restoring humanitarian interventions through the disbursement of food aid and other projects, to reduce the slide towards dangerous stages of famine.

He pointed out the importance of increasing humanitarian support for the Yemeni people and not to involve the humanitarian file in political bargaining processes.

He stressed that the SCMCHA provides facilities to the United Nations and various UN and international organizations working in the humanitarian field, to overcome any difficulties facing their activities, and to enhance the chances of success for joint humanitarian efforts.

For his part, the Resident Coordinator confirmed that the United Nations is working to mobilize funds to redisburse food aid and address all problems facing humanitarian work, in cooperation with SCMCHA , praising the role of SCMCHA in facilitating the work of organizations.

The meeting was attended by the Director General of Monitoring and Evaluation, Mohammed Al-Razza
