The only public hospital offering care to mothers and children in Yemen's beleaguered city of Marib has warned it may close at the end of this September due to lack of funding.
Martyr Mohammed Hayel Hospital which serves the entire province of three million people most of them escapees from the terrorist Houthi militia has said it is going to shut down due to the "lack of a budget" after the withdrawal of international organizations that used to provide salaries for 65 health workers in the facility: doctors, technicians and nurses.
The hospital's director Ali Al-Saeedi told Saba that the Family Care Society, a donor of the salaries of 16 health workers at the end of last August, while the IOM a donor of the salaries of 30 health workers withdrew its support at the beginning of the current month.
He said the health workers volunteered this month without pay and will be laid off at the end of it.
