ABU DHABI, 16th November, 2016 (WAM) — The first fleet of four-wheeled vehicles, donated by the Khalifa Foundation, was delivered today to the police department of Socotra Province in Yemen, in line with the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

An official at the Khalifa Foundation said that the donation was part of the organisation’s commitment to assist Socotra, a small archipelago, which was severely hit by the back-to-back cyclones, Chapala and Megh, last year.

Colonel Saleh Ali Saad, Director-General of Socotra Police, received the fleet of seven vehicles and lauded the UAE’s constant support to Yemen and to the province of Socotra.
