The Public Health and Population Office in Sanhan and Bani Bahlul districts of Sanaa province launched a blood donation campaign on Monday for the patients and wounded.

Dr. Abdul Ghani Faraj, director of the health office in the directorate, said the campaign comes within the framework of community responsibility towards the patients and wounded, especially in light of the current circumstances in which the country is going through the continued aggression and blockade.

He praised the citizens’ interaction with the donation campaign carried out by the health unit in Beit Aqab area, calling on the community to interact with various national blood donation campaigns.

In March 2015, the US_Saudi coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor.

Nearly four years 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.
