HADHRMAUT, Aid from the UAE has again been sent to help feed the people of Yemen.

The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has distributed 3,000 food packages in the Directorate of Thamud in the Governorate of Hadhramaut to increase the population's resilience in facing harsh economic and living conditions.

The ERC said the food assistance is part of its fourth programme to help low-income and poor families in Hadhramaut, who have endured choking economic conditions due to exorbitant food prices.

''The programme comes within the framework of the UAE's assistance to the Yemeni people, so they might be resilient in facing the crisis created by the practices of the Houthi rebel militia and forces loyal to defunct president Ali Abdullah Saelh,'' said Hamdan Al Mehnhali, ERC Representative in Hadhramaut.

The assistance will enable the people of Thamud to face their difficult living conditions, he added.
