RIYADH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center signed three joint agreements on Thursday to operate prosthetic limbs and physical rehabilitation centers in Seiyun, Taiz, and Aden in Yemen.
The agreements, which would benefit more than 8,000 patients, were signed by KSrelief’s assistant supervisor general for operations and programs, Ahmed bin Ali Al-Baiz, at the center’s headquarters in Riyadh.
Abdullah Al-Moallem, director of KSrelief’s health and environmental aid department, said that under these agreements, the center will provide physical rehabilitation services for people with special needs along with follow-up appointments and coverage.
He said patients will be diagnosed at the centers as a treatment plan will be identified for each patient on an individual basis. The installation of prosthetic limbs along with functional rehabilitation services will also be included.
Al-Moallem said the agreements also aim to improve the capabilities of the medical and technical cadre in Yemen to reduce the immigration of specialized medical and technical personnel.
