Article Summary:
Homeless in Sanaa
By: Jalal Al-Sharaabi
Solving the problem of the homeless and mentally retarded people who roam the streets of Sanaa is still being impeded by routine and official wrangling among several ministries. Despite the fact that the Ministry of Social Insurance is supposed to be responsible for homeless people, the minister chooses to ignore their plight.
The Presidential Office had early in March issued a directive to the Minister of Social Insurance to take the necessary measures to tackle the problem of homelessness in Sanaa and other major towns and cities in Yemen. The minister referred the presidential directive to the Ministry of Health.
