Saudi aid agency KSrelief, in cooperation with the World Health Organization, launched an oxygen station at a hospital in Yemen’s Abyan governate.
The station will produce 72 cylinders of oxygen a day with 40-liter capacity each at Shahid Mehnef Hospital, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
The project is part of the medical aid that Saudi Arabia has sent to Yemen in support of the healthcare sector in the war-stricken country. The Kingdom’s aid plan to Yemen is worth more than $2 million.
“The project aims at ensuring a constant supply of oxygen to hospitals in Yemen’s Hadramout, Shabwa, Marib, and Abyan governorates,” read an SPA statement.
Yemen’s Health Ministry also received medical supplies and equipment for the intensive care and emergency departments at Marib General Hospital and Kara General Hospital in Marib.
Meanwhile, KSrelief’s aid efforts have continued in other countries. People affected by floods in Pakistan’s Punjab province received shelter bags, and KSrelief distributed boxes of dates for 12,500 Syrian refugees in Lebanon’s Beqaa governorate.
