HODEIDAH, 25th September, 2018 (WAM) — Dr. Al Hassan Ali Taher, Governor of Hodeidah, has opened Ad Durayhimi Hospital on the Red Sea Coast of Yemen after being fully rehabilitated by the Emirates Red Crescent, ERC.

The opening of Ad Durayhimi Hospital, which provides healthcare services to thousands of Yemeni families, is part of the development and service projects of the ERC in the Red Sea Coast of Yemen to support the health sector in the newly liberated areas after the Iranian-backed Houthi militias destroyed hospitals and health centres and turned some into military hideouts.

Dr. Taher said that the opening of Ad Durayhimi Hospital in Hodeidah governorate is part of the great charitable work carried out by the UAE in the Red Sea Coast of Yemen to well serve the needs in the liberated areas.

Al Kaabi said that the UAE is supporting the health sector in Yemen in order to provide appropriate treatment services especially for children, women and the elderly.

For their part, the people of Ad Durayhimi extended their thanks and gratitude to the UAE for its humanitarian stances and its outstanding efforts in serving the people of Yemen and alleviating the harsh conditions they undergo through the implementation of development projects and rehabilitation of vital sectors, especially the healthcare.
