A total of $1 million cash will be donated to Yemen for humanitarian aid as part of a protocol signed between the Turkish Red Crescent (Kizilay) and the Qatar Charity Foundation.

Turkish Red Crescent head Kerem Kinik and Qatar Charity Foundation CEO Faisal Rashid Al Fehaida on Sunday signed the cooperation protocol during a ceremony at the Presidency Office of the Red Crescent in Istanbul.

As part of the protocol, two projects will be implemented in Yemen. Firstly, $1 million cash will be donated to provide food aid, Kinik said.

Secondly, a gastroenterological endoscopic treatment center would be established at a hospital in Yemen, he added.

"We will continue to support the Red Crescent for its projects in Yemen that will meet food needs, particularly hospital needs," Faisal Rashid Al Fehaida said.

According to the UN, more than 22 million people in Yemen need humanitarian assistance or protection.
