ADEN: The UAE has offered 33 tonnes of food supplements to Yemeni children who are suffering from severe malnutrition, through launching a comprehensive nutrition programme.

The food supplements were delivered to Al Jumhuriah Hospital in Aden, Yemen, as part of the UAE’s ongoing efforts to ease the suffering of Yemenis, due to the difficult humanitarian circumstances caused by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias.

An Emirati plane arrived at the Aden International Airport carrying the food supplements, as part of the first phase of the total 200 tonnes food supplement that will arrive in batches in the coming days. These nutritional supplements are essential for all age groups, especially children, and they are called Plumpy Sup and Plumpy Nut.

Ahmed Al Kamal, Yemeni Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Public Health and Population; Saeed Al Kaabi, UAE Humanitarian Operations Director in Yemen, as well as several Yemeni officials, were present at the airport to receive the supplies.
