Blockade on Yemen Prevents Entry of Medicines for Kidney Failure Patients: Sana’a
The spokesman for Sana’a Ministry of Health, Anis Al-Asbahi, confirmed that the Saudi coalition’s siege prevented dialysis centers from performing their duty as required.
“The use of internationally prohibited weapons by the countries involved in the Saudi coalition has led to an increase in dialysis patients, in addition to the continuation of the blockade that prevents the entry of medicines for patients with kidney failure,” he said in a statement to Al-Masirah TV.
He explained that the state was concerned with supporting dialysis centers, but because of the Saudi coalition, international organizations became the supporting party, and now these organizations have reduced support.
Al-Asbahi called on international organizations to unify their efforts to meet the humanitarian work in Yemen, open Sana’a International Airport to humanitarian flights, and bring in medical supplies.
