ERC distributes food supplies to needy families, orphans and widows in Yemen

The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, on Sunday distributed humanitarian aid to underprivileged families, orphans and widows in the Mukalla District, Governorate of Hadramaut, as part of the UAE's relief programme to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.

Ahmed Al Neyadi, Deputy Head of the ERC team in Hadramaut, said the latest food assistance reflects the desire of the leadership and the people of the UAE to help the Yemeni people to overcome the economic difficulties the country is facing.

"The assistance seeks to fill the food gap caused by the difficult economic and humanitarian conditions, which has increased poverty and unemployment among the Yemeni people.

"We will continue our efforts to improve the living conditions of the underprivileged through vital services and humanitarian projects," he stressed.

Beneficiaries thanked the ERC for the timely delivery of food, which they said has helped alleviate their suffering.
