For his part, the Director of the OCHA Office explained the keenness to address humanitarian files to alleviate the existing suffering, praising the efforts of the SCMCHA in providing facilities and overcoming difficulties for organizations working in Yemen.

The meeting was attended by SCMCHA’s General Directors of Projects, Jamal Barih, international organizations Turki Jamil, and information officer Ibrahim Al-Houthi.
