EMIRATES RED CRESCENT DELIVERS FOOD ASSISTANCE TO PERIM ISLAND, YEMEN

The Emirates Red Crescent, has delivered food assistance to the people of Perim Island, as part of its relief programme, to support areas liberated from the Houthi militia and forces loyal to defunct president, Ali Saleh.

Salem Al Aini, a notable from Perim, a volcanic island in the Straits of Bab el Mandeb, at the south entrance into the Red Sea, thanked the ERC for rebuilding services utilities, which were destroyed by the Houthi-Saleh militias, when they took control of the island.

''The UAE has played a significant role in liberating the island, and it is now rebuilding services utilities, and providing relief materials to the islanders,'' he added.
