HADRAMAUT, 12th June, 2018 (WAM) -- The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, today began its distribution of Ramadan Mir in Ghayl Ba Wazir District, Hadramaut Governorate, targeting underprivileged families, as part of the UAE’s efforts to support the people of Yemen.
The ERC responded to urgent calls made by local people, who are deprived of basic services, by sending a field team to assess their needs. The team then distributed relief assistance to hundreds of local residents, as part of the ERC’s efforts during the Holy Month of Ramadan, coinciding with the Year of Zayed.
During the start of the aid distribution, which was attended by ERC representatives Sultan Nuaimi and Khamis Al Dhanhany, Ahmed Al Neyadi, Head of the ERC Team in Hadramaut, said that distributing the relief assistance aims to answer the needs of local people and improve the lives of their families, who are suffering from difficult economic and humanitarian conditions.
