The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in Yemen has received a new $4.85 million grant from Saudi Arabia through King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) to address moderate acute malnutrition among children under five and pregnant and lactating women.

This one-year initiative will support 86,985 vulnerable individuals across Abyan, Aden, Al-Dhal, Hodeidah, Al-Mahra, Hadhramout, Lahj, Marib, Shabwa, Socotra, and Taiz.

KSrelief’s contribution will enable WFP to supply ready-to-use supplements and fortified blended flour to malnourished children and pregnant and lactating women in crisis-affected parts of Yemen, focusing on treating malnutrition. 

“Every child has the right to a healthy life, free from hunger. This additional funding from KSrelief is crucial for supporting the children and women most at risk in these governorates,” stated Richard Ragan, WFP Yemen Representative and Country Director.

“We are proud to partner with the WFP to support the malnutrition treatment program for vulnerable populations in Yemen. Ensuring the health and well-being of every child and mother is a longstanding KSrelief commitment. This is not only about providing nutritional supplements; it is also about instilling hope and resilience for a stronger, healthier society” said Dr. Abdullah Al Moallem, KSrelief’s Director of the Health and Environmental Aid Department.
