HADRAMAUT, The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC), distributed rescue supplies to people with special needs, as well as, to those from poor and limited income families, in the Hajar district, West of Hadramaut Governorate, in Yemen.
The distribution programme was part of the UAE's humanitarian campaign and rescue efforts, to help its brothers in Yemen, by easing their suffering, and improving their living and economic circumstances.
Ahmed Al-Neyadi, Deputy Head of the ERC team in Hadramaut, clarified that, the rescue supplies were distributed, to meet the needs of the people and normalise the living conditions of the families facing difficult economic circumstances.
The ERC is working, especially in the humanitarian fields, to bridge the gap in food supply, in light of the recent events witnessed by the governorate, which has made food scarce and difficult to buy for poor families.
He stressed that, the ERC would intensify its humanitarian efforts in the liberated governorates and remote regions. He highlighted that the ERC had arranged the distribution of the rescue supplies through a mechanism, to ensure that the food aid reached those who needed them.
Mohammed Baras, Representative of the local authority in Hajar district, praised the role of the ERC, in raising the level of livelihoods of the people, through its sustained humanitarian aid.
He pointed out that, the people of the district were facing difficult and complicated economic conditions, as well as, lacking basic services, owing to the Houthi coup against the legitimate government of the country.
He added that, the Emirati presence in the governorate of Hadramaut, and the other liberated governorates, could not be ignored or forgotten, especially as the governorates were facing a crisis because of the Chapala and Meg hurricanes.
The beneficiaries have expressed their overwhelming happiness with the ERC's humanitarian gesture and praised the UAE and the people, for their sustained rescue operations in the Yemeni governorates.
