Indonesia is also expected to be part of a coalition of humanitarian missions to help Yemeni people who are suffering from armed conflict, Rabeeah, who is also active as a surgeon, said.

“We look forward to building cooperation with Indonesia on humanitarian missions for Yemen,” the King Salman Humanitarian Aid King Aid & Relief Center adviser said.

Indonesia through its non-government organizations can join the mission with the Saudi Arabia Humanitarian Aid Center, Rabeeah, who has visited Indonesia, added.

The Saudi Arabia humanitarian aid center, also known as KS Relief, is the worlds leading foundation in the delivery of humanitarian aid to conflict areas, Rabeeah explained.

“Together with the humanitarian organizations of the United Nations (UN) as well as regional and local organizations, we have worked hard to help people who have been the victims of conflicts,” he added.
