Abu Dhabi: UAE-based volunteer humanitarian organization Emirates Red Crescent (ERC)’s Ramadan Programs have benefited close to 7,035,000 people in six Yemeni governorates, including Shabwa, Hadhramaut, Taiz, Hodeidah, Aden and Socotra.
While ERC’s Ramadan Mir and Iftar Projects benefitted some 6,870,000 people, its Eid Clothing Initiatives were beneficial to 165,000 people.
These Initiatives were implemented under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and the follow-up of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region and Chairman of the ERC.
These Directives from His Highness are part of the humanitarian and development efforts undertaken by the UAE to ease the suffering of people and improve their lives. They also aim to meet the needs of underprivileged citizens during the Holy Month of Ramadan and enhance food security in light of the current situation in Yemen.
The ERC Secretary-General further added that Sheikh Mohamed’s directives enhance the ERC’s humanitarian and development role in Yemen, enabling it to provide the best services to the Yemeni brothers on all fronts and improve their living conditions.
Dr. Al Falahi highlighted that ERC, thanks to His Highness’ backing, accomplished many charitable and development gains in the Yemeni arena.
The ERC Official also pointed out that the Organization immediately began implementing Sheikh Mohamed’s directives to deliver Ramadan needs of thousands of families before the Holy month.
