ADEN: The Emi­rates Red Cres­cent, ERC, has dis­trib­uted 16,000 food bas­kets to res­i­dents of lib­er­ated Ye­meni gov­er­norates dur­ing the past ive days.

This lat­est food aid dis­tri­bu­tion has as­sisted 112,000 Ye­me­nis, of which were 80,000 chil­dren and 16,000 women.

The food bas­kets were dis­trib­uted across Aden, Dhala, Abyan, La­hej, Hodei­dah, Hadra­maut, Shabwa, and Mahra, in a bid to al­le­vi­ate the hard­ships faced by Ye­men’s pop­u­la­tion as a re­sult of Houthi vi­o­la­tions.

Saeed Al Kaabi, UAE Hu­man­i­tar­ian Op­er­a­tions Di­rec­tor for Ye­men, said that the con­tin­ued dis­tri­bu­tion of hu­man­i­tar­ian re­lief and food aid to in­di­vid­u­als in Ye­men’s lib­er­ated cities is in line with the UAE’S for­eign aid pol­icy, and the coun­try’s keen­ness to sup­port Ye­men.
