Al-Hamli: Take as much care of Yemeni children with cancer as you do for vaccinations.
The Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation, Ibrahim al-Hamli, said that Yemeni children are dying of cancer and malnutrition, calling on organizations to take care of Yemeni children with cancer, as much as they care about vaccinations, by implementing interventions that contribute to alleviating their suffering.

Secretary-General of SCMCHA, expressed hope that the workshop would contribute to enriching the plans and producing the best results, facilitating implementation and the sustainability of the implemented projects according to agreed mechanisms with a clear vision and matching points of view to achieve the objectives of the drawn plans.
Al-Hamli emphasized the importance of reviewing and discussing the plans of the agencies that will be funded by UNICEF, as well as working to improve coordination among relevant authorities in order to develop a mechanism that contributes to the implementation of projects that meet the needs of citizens based on need priorities.
He pointed out the need for the plans submitted by government agencies to be in touch with the needs of reality and contribute to alleviating the suffering of the citizen who has been living the worst humanitarian crisis in the world due to the aggression and siege for eight years, and the suspension of salaries, which doubled the suffering of the Yemeni people, especially the poor and displaced families.
