UNFPA Reckons KSA's Empowerment of Women in Yemen

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) said that “the partnership with the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) has contributed to the improvement of the protection services provided to the most vulnerable women and girls in Yemen.”

“KSRelief has generously supported the protection services aimed at reducing gender-based violence, benefitting more than 65,000 women and girls in Yemen since the beginning of 2021,” UNFPA said in its statement.

“Awareness-raising sessions have been provided to more than 30,000 people so far, while 800 women facing violence received the necessary training to acquire livelihood skills. Financial support was provided to more than 200 of the most needy women, while eight safe spaces and a shelter in nine Yemeni governorates received the necessary support," the report published on Arab News also added.

The statement said that “the partnership between KSRelief and UNFPA has helped, since 2015, access hundreds of thousands of women and girls and provide them with reproductive health services and protection.”
