ERC distributes 160 tonnes of foodstuffs in Hadramaut, Lahej

HAJAR, Yemen, 2nd March, 2019 (WAM) — Up to 14,000 eligible Yemenis have benefitted from 2,000 baskets holding 160 tonnes of foodstuffs that have been distributed by the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) among underprivileged households in the Hajar district in Hadramaut Governorate, as well as in Al Modharaba and Raas Al Aara districts in Lahej, recently.

The new aid consignment falls within the continuing efforts made by the UAE to ease the suffering of the Yemeni people who have profoundly expressed their gratitude to the UAE leadership and ERC teams for securing their essential needs.

Brigadier Mohamed Abdullah Al Sini, Director-General of Al Modharba District, underlined the importance of the fresh aid shipments for the locals to survive the straightened circumstances triggered by Houthis.

He hailed the significant and sustainable humanitarian and developmental support provided by the UAE through its premier humanitarian aid arm, ERC.

Thus far, a total of 4,400 baskets holding 355 tonnes of foodstuffs have been sent by UAE since the start of the ‘Year of Tolerance’, from which 22,000 eligible Yemenis in Hadramaut benefited.
