The UAE plays a crucial role in Yemen today. It’s not only part of an alliance that’s trying to restore the country’s legitimate government, but it also brings succour to the people hit by the war. The Gulf Today team takes a look at the UAE’s humanitarian programmes in Yemen.

ERC opens 10 schools in Aden

As part of its second phase to rebuild the schools and provide necessary educational requirements, the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC), has opened 10 schools in Aden.

The schools were reopened after their renovation in the presence of Dr. Mohammed Ateeq Al Falahi, Secretary-General of the ERC, and the Red Crescent delegation.

The ERC has pledged to renovate and provide all the educational requirements to 154 schools to receive students during this academic year. The school bags and stationery have been distributed to students in Aden Governorate schools.
The guardians in Aden thanked the UAE for striving to normalise life in Aden.

Dr. Ateeq said upon the directives of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in the Western Region and Chairman of the ERC, the ERC teams in Aden continue their humanitarian efforts in all service sectors to alleviate sufferings of the people of Yemen and rebuild a number of development and educational projects.

Re-operating a
hospital in Yemen

The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has rehabilitated a hospital in the Directorate of Ramah in Yemen and is now ready to welcome patients as part of a series of health and educational projects the ERC is implementing to help Yemenis recover from the unfortunate events taking place there.

An ERC representative told a launch ceremony that the vital project comes as part of several projects the ERC is undertaking to rehabilitate infrastructure facilities in the Governorates of Hadramout and Al Mahrah.

The project is of special importance as it lies in the midst of the desert directorates and on the international highway that links Yemen with the GCC countries.

ERC representatives and Yemeni officials toured the hospital and were briefed by its director on the healthcare services it provides to patients in these directorates.

Beneficiaries expressed their happiness and thanks to the ERC for operating the health facility in Ramah.

Meanwhile, the first batch of water pumps and sewerage system supplies shipped from the UAE arrived at Aden port to resume operations at the water stations and sewage network in Aden.

The ERC has been playing a significant role in the rehabilitation and maintenance of many different government facilities. Its cadres are also involved in the maintenance of infrastructure and health sector projects. They also provide projects for the benefit of families and children of the martyrs in Aden, and distribute food parcels to the inhabitants of Aden.

The Red Crescent supported the municipality of Aden to secure 16 trucks and 1,600 containers to facilitate cleaning, collecting and transporting waste and other municipal work.

ERC provides aid to rebuild Aden

The ERC has stressed that it will continue to provide humanitarian and development assistance to the people of Yemen. It added that the ERC teams are providing a large number of food and relief parcels for more than 4,000 Yemeni families in Aden on a daily basis.

In its report, the ERC stated that as far as the development projects in Aden were concerned, the philanthropist body is working to reconstruct and revamp a number of infrastructure projects in various fields.

The report also added that more than 50 schools in Aden have been revamped and maintenance work will continue to cover 154 schools. Also, a number of health facilities, water and electricity works, electricity, sewerage and parks and others will be included in the plan.

The report also mentioned that during the coming period, the ERC will send a bigger number of its teams to various regions in Yemen to distribute thousands of parcels of various kinds of food and relief, as well as undertake complete reconstruction of service and infrastructure facilities.
