UAE assistance to Yemen exemplary

The UAE generously backs legitimacy and humanitarian operations in Yemen and has been extending continuous support to reduce the suffering of Yemenis and strengthen their resilience in the face of the difficult circumstances due to the ongoing crisis in that country.

The Emirates Red Crescent’s (ERC) sponsoring of the treatment of injured Yemenis at Indian hospitals is the latest in a series of various benevolent activities the UAE has initiated.

The idea is to alleviate the suffering of the Yemenis and stand by them in the face of several gross Houthi violations.

The humanitarian and health situation in Yemen has reached catastrophic levels primarily due to the intransigence of the Houthi militias who prevent the entry of relief aid and medicines to the various Yemeni regions.

Just recently, the Houthi militia and forces loyal to the now-ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh brazenly seized 200 relief aid trucks of the World Food Programme in several Yemeni governorates to provide food supplies to their troops and to transport their militants.

The trucks were en route to 12 districts in Taiz Governorate. Some trucks were bound for Abs District to help internally-displaced people.

The ERC announced last week that it would also bear the cost of medical escorts who travel along with the injured to ensure that their health and psychological conditions are cared for.

In addition, the ERC donated ten Toyota Landcruiser 4X4 ambulances to the World Health Organisation Country Office in Yemen as part of its continuous support for the health sector.

For orphans and children with special needs from low-income families in Mukalla, the capital of yemen’s southern governorate of Hadramaut, the ERC this week launched a project to provide Eid Al Fitr clothing.

With a view to improve public services in Yemeni governorates, the UAE is offering 99 buses to schools, clubs and public transport services in Yemen. It may be recalled that in April 2017, the UAE supplied a fleet of buses to the Aden International Airport as part of its plan to rehabilitate the airport and upgrade services provided to passengers.

The UAE also signed an agreement to build a protection wall and external gates for the Aden International Airport, as part of the second phase of the rebuilding of the airport and enhancing the services provided to passengers.

The sustained humanitarian support extended by the UAE to the brotherly people of Yemen at their time of need would forever be etched in their hearts.
