21 Jan 2016 11:56 PM | Anonymous

ALWEHDAH announced a pioneering collaboration to establish regional support for the United Nations Development Programme initiative, “Yemen Our Home”.

This partnership will provide an easy platform for Yemeni Diaspora, based in Singapore and surrounding countries, to extend their support to conflict-ridden communities back in Yemen, through UNDP-led projects.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the partnership was signed between Mr. Khalid Basharahil,  ALWEHDAH President, and Ms. Mikiko Tanaka, UNDP Country Director for Yemen. Ms. Tanaka officiated at the launch, which was attended by more than 100 members of the local Yemeni Diaspora. The MOU specifies the intent of mutual collaboration to promote Yemen our Home projects of interest to the Yemeni Diaspora in South East Asia and fundraise for their implementation.
