Saudi program launches series of developmental projects in Yemen
The Saudi Program for the Development and Reconstruction of Yemen has launched a number of vital development projects in Yemen under the directives of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi Press Agency has reported.
A ceremony was held on Wednesday to mark the launch of the initiatives, which include work at the Aden General Hospital — including constructing a cardiology clinic — and two phases of rebuilding at Aden International Airport.
The hospital, which boasts 20,000 square meters in all, will eventually contain 2,187 medical instruments and a bed capacity of 270. A reproductive health unit, endoscopic and physiotherapy units, as well as a laboratory and pharmacy, will be included in the planned work.
The SPDRY launch also involves an educational project to construct four schools around Yemen, as well as the building of 170 housing units for low-income families in Aden.
The SPDRY is part of the Kingdom’s efforts to support the economic development of Yemen. Launched in 2018, it has carried out 224 developmental projects and initiatives across the country to assist the Yemeni people in various sectors, according to the SPA.
