RIYADH — In cooperation with the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), the Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations (FAO) has provided aid to more than 8,000 Yemeni families from the fishing community that depends on the sea to secure their livelihood, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Friday.

Through its partnership with FAO, KSrelief seeks to enable fishermen to practice their profession in a safe environment, improve their living conditions, and help alleviate their suffering, as the fish sector plays a crucial role in food security in Yemen, and the sector provides food, livelihoods and permanent income for fishermen.

The aid is part of the KSrelief’s emergency support project for agricultural livelihoods for the most affected families in six Yemeni governorates, Taiz, Lahj, Abyan, Al-Dhale, Hajjah, and Amran.

The project aims to enhance food security and provide livelihoods to 70,000 Yemeni families, according to the needs of the population living in rural areas through three types of interventions — poultry production, cash support, improving animal and agricultural production — for improving living conditions for the affected groups living in the coastal areas of Yemen while the restoration of the infrastructure for fisheries is underway.

This comes within the framework of the humanitarian role played by Saudi Arabia, represented by the KSrelief, to provide various services to the Yemeni people and support relief and development programs in Yemen during the current crisis.
