Yemen Unrest: MSF Supports Public and Private Hospitals in Sana’a


Clashes between Al Houthi militants and elements of the Yemeni army in Sana’a.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has responded to the increasing needs of public and private hospitals in Sana’a and has made medical donations to three hospitals, as well as to the Yemeni Red Crescent.

Donations were made to Al-Kuwait public hospital, Al-Moayad private hospital, and Dhula Hospital. They included dressing kits for over 350 patients, as well as medications, anesthesia drugs, and other materials.

“Although our main medical activities are in other governorates in Yemen, the situation in Sana’a necessitated urgent support for the hospitals receiving wounded,” says Marie-Elisabeth Ingres, MSF country representative in Yemen. “We are still in continuous coordination with the hospitals and the Ministry of Health and will consider their additional needs according to our capacities.”
