Japan’s government decided to provide a new humanitarian aid package worth about ¥2.5 billion yen ($24.1 million) to Yemen.
The aid will come from Japan’s supplementary budget for the fiscal year of 2020, in addition to the ¥2.1 billion yen ($20.5 million) food grant that was decided earlier by the Asian country.
According to Nippon.com in Arabic, the humanitarian package includes coverage of various humanitarian projects in cooperation with international organizations, namely UNHCR, UNOPS, UNICEF, ICRC, FAO, UNDP, UN-HABITAT, WHO, UNIDO, IOM, OCHA and IFRC, in addition to some Japanese NGOs.
