The UAE is an important partner of KSA in contributing to the UN’s 2018 Humanitarian Response for Yemen and in the Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Plan.
The UN launched a comprehensive humanitarian response plan for Yemen in early January with almost $3 billion in order to reach and assist millions of Yemeni people.
$930 million in aid to Yemen
The UAE had pledged $500 million on Wednesday to support the United Nations’ humanitarian response plan in Yemen, the state news agency WAM reported.
Combined, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have given $930 million to UN humanitarian efforts in Yemen.
Mohammed bin Salman presented the previously pledged donation Tuesday to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
Guterres thanked Prince Mohammed for the contribution to alleviating what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with 22 million people needing aid.
