2020-08-04 | Since 2 Month

Riyadh Sana'a (Debriefer) - The Yemeni internationally-recognized government on Monday appealed for help to tackle damages left by tropical depression and resultant torrential floods the affected some provinces in the war-torn country.
Yemen's minister of local administration called on the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen to make UN agencies send humanitarian relief teams to troubled governorates, according to the Riyadh-based Saba.
Abdul Raqeeb Fateh, also head of the supreme relief committee, urged Lise Grande to provide emergency aid for the affected people and support local authorities' efforts in the face of impacts caused by floods.
On Sunday, the Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi ordered all available resources be channeled to tackle these effects, and all requirements be urgently provided to the affected.
Minister Fateh highlighted the need for coordination with UN and international agencies to limit damages and provide people with urgent, comprehensive assistances.
He called on civil society organizations to mobilize all resources and support local authorities' efforts aimed at alleviating the rainfall effects.
Coupled with strong winds, the recent torrential rains and floods have partially and completely swept away 15 IDP camps in three Yemeni governorates, leaving damages to homes of 2,242 people, according to official initial statistics.
