ICRC Coordinating Food Aid in Northern Yemen

The governor of the northern Yemen province of Sa’adah met with the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) this week to discuss the available options for increasing the amount of food aid to the area.

Governor Taha Hajjer met on Tuesday with Klaus Spreyermann to explore the ways in which provisions can be delivered to the distressed districts of his region and the mechanisms of distributing that food in a dependable and timely way. Coordination is needed with the executive units of the displaced persons camps to assure proper delivery and distribution.

Hajjer reassured Spreyermann that he and his administration are prepared to do whatever is needed to facilitate the ICRC programs so that the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) will receive the crucial help that they require for survival.  Hajjer praised the efforts of the ICRC and its regional partner the Red Crescent Society which operates in the province of Sa’adah.
