UAE provides food aid to families in Yemen


More than 1,500 citizens are the beneficiaries of an aid convoy sent by the UAE to Yemen.

The country's humanitarian arm - the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) - has sent the consignment, which includes food baskets to families in the province of Dhale.

The gesture is part of the UAE leadership's continuous efforts to ease the suffering of Yemeni people through various developmental, relief, and humanitarian campaigns.

In May 2018, the ERC distributed more than 7,000 food baskets which benefited 49,000 Yemenis, in addition to an emergency response campaign that included providing shelter support like tents and water tanks, along with a shipment of medicines and health supplies.
