MEAMARKETS / 2018 GCC Enterprise Awards 21 Saudi Arabia Based Organisation Looks To Reduce Landmines in The Yemen KSrelief launches comprehensive project to deliver ‘LifeWithout Landmines’ for Yemenis The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) has recently launched the Saudi Project for Landmine Clearance (MASAM), a program committed to making Yemen landmine-free in order to protect civilians and to safeguard the delivery of urgent humanitarian supplies. More than 600,000 mines are planted in the liberated areas by militias, 130,000 internationally- banned sea mines, 40,000 mines in Marib and 16,000 in the island of Mayon. The conflict has resulted in the manufacture and deployment of landmines by militias causing over 1,539 recorded deaths, injury for over 3,000 and permanent disability to over 900 Yemenis, mostly women, children and the elderly. Unfortunately, these figures are far less than the actual numbers as the national demining program has not been able to identify and register them. At a KSrelief-funded prosthetics center in Marib, more than 195 landmine victims were fitted with 305 prosthetic last year. This KSrelief-funded project was launched following the Yemeni Government’s signing of an Agreement for Clearance of Landmines and GCC18001 enrolment by Chinese students is growing by 10 per cent a year across all higher education institutions in Dubai including the vocational schools. Her company matches Chinese youth with Dubai schools and training centres, including Eton Institute and the Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management. Romina Mahtani, CEO of Eton Institute, the region’s leading language school that has offered courses in 160 languages since 2006, said she has seen a “significant increase” in demand from Chinese students. She said that with more Chinese families moving to Dubai for work, there is greater demand from Chinese youth who wish to improve their English-language skills for the local workplace. Looking ahead, te demand for Chinese services, companies and products is set to increase in the lead up to Dubai Expo 2020, which is predicted to create several jobs in the UAE’s non-oil sectors. Bi-lateral trade between the two countries is also expected to increase by 5 per cent annually, indicating a strong need to strengthen professional relationships and networks in the coming years.

Clearance will be in five phases: • Phase one: Consultation, surveying and coordination with local authorities. • Phase two: Deployment and the initial execution on safe clearing of landmines. • Phase three: Comprehensive clearing operations for landmine removals across at least six governorates of Yemen, including Sanaa, Marib, Aden and Taiz. • Phase four: Implementation of rapid-intervention teams to clear critical aid delivery infrastructure and emergency response situations. • Phase five: Comprehensive operations management and ongoing delivery of phases three and four. Dr Abdullah Al Rabeeah, KSrelief Supervisor General, said: “The use of landmines against the innocent people of Yemen has been a despicable blight on the lives of civilians and aid workers across the country. KSrelief and our partners at Dynashield, with the support of the Yemeni government, are committed to the safe and comprehensive removal of these devastating devices. Critically, this project will also clear aid delivery routes to ensure an unimpeded flow of humanitarian supplies. Our promise is a life without landmines for the people of Yemen.”
