In Yemen, food baskets were distributed to 7,000 poor and displaced beneficiaries over four days.
The relief officer at QRCS’s mission in Sanaa said the 1,000 food baskets were given to vulnerable families headed by women, displaced and underserved families, shelter and juvenile homes, orphans, and persons with disability.
All precautions were taken during the handover of baskets, QRCS said.
The beneficiaries were arranged with interval distances, and sanitisers were used to protect both the personnel and beneficiaries.
