Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has begun the first phase of its project to renovate and repair 154 schools and educational institutions in Yemen.

During this phase, around 123 education institutions will be repaired as part of the ERC's continuing efforts to promote services in the educational sector, which has badly hit by the ongoing strife in Yemen.  

The renovation work is currently underway in another 31 schools, as part of the second phase of the rehabilitation of schools, which are expected to open soon.

The educational authorities in Yemen have expressed their appreciation to the ERC for supporting the educational sector.
