Qatar Charity delivers emergency aid to Yemen’s healthcare facilities
The assistance is part of the emergency project funded by the United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Qatar Charity (QC) has provided emergency health assistance to healthcare facilities in Ibb governorate of Yemen, where support was extended to two health centres of Al Mashannah district, in addition to training 24 health workers.
The assistance is part of the emergency project funded by the United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).





The emergency health services were delivered to the host community and the internally displaced persons (IDPs), given the challenging humanitarian circumstances of the areas inhabited by approximately 21,000 people, including the IDPs and the host community.
The training of the health workers of the two health centres included infection prevention, reproductive health, Covid-19 screening and psychological support.
Dr Amin El-Sayed, director of the Family Health Centre, said the aid contributed to meeting the needs of the centre that suffers from a shortage of medicines, devices and furniture, adding that the centre receives the poorest families from the IDPs and host communities, and patients receive the service at the centre for free. The director of the centre underlined the importance of the continuation of this project, which has a clear impact on the beneficiaries in this region.
The trainees expressed delight at the training that benefited them greatly and helped them improve the health services provided to the patients, QC said in a statement.
Aziza Ghaboush, an IDP, said that due to this project, Lahij Medical Centre began to provide much better services than before, indicating that she receives free health services from the centre.
Laila al-Dais, a resident of the Lahij area and member of the host community, said the centre provides medical services to IDPs facing challenging financial conditions, indicating that QC has provided medicines to the patients of the centre. Qatar Charity recently signed two partnership agreements with OCHA’s Yemen office to implement two projects in the health sector.
