Discussing the suffering of thalassemia patients as a result of the continuation of the siege.
The Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation, Ibrahim Al-Hamli, discussed today with the Director-General of the Yemeni Thalassemia Society, Jamil Al-Khayati, the suffering of patients as a result of the siege.
The meeting discussed the challenges that faced thalassemia patients in light of the difficult circumstances as a result of the continued aggression and siege, which has exacerbated the health and humanitarian conditions and prevented the entry of life-saving medicines.
Al-Hamli pointed to the importance of concerted efforts to secure the needs of thalassemia patients to alleviate their suffering, stressing SCMCHA keenness to coordinate efforts and direct appropriate health projects to provide their needs according to the available capabilities.
For his part, Al-Khayati appreciated SCMCHA’s role and efforts in the field of coordination and guidance of humanitarian and health projects, and support of humanitarian workers to implement their work in light of the difficult conditions caused by the aggression and the unjust siege.
