MUKALLA, -- The Emirates Red Crescent today delivered emergency humanitarian aid to the hundreds of underprivileged families in al-Riyan district in Yemen's southern coastal province of Hadramaut, as part of efforts to improve the living conditions in the province.

The aid embodies the UAE's ethical and humanitarian responsibility towards Yemen, said Abdullah Al Musaferi, head of the Emirates Red Crescent in Hadramaut.

The Emirates Red Crescent will continue its efforts to help as many people as possible in the province where the humanitarian and security situation is worsening due to the developments taking place across Yemen, Al Musaferi added.

Residents of al-Riyan thanked the UAE and its humanitarian arm for the aid which they described as timely amid a worsening economic situation and a lack of jobs. WAM/MMYS
