SHABWA, 27th November, 2017 (WAM) -- The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, has continued distributing humanitarian and relief assistance to needy and underprivileged families in Shabwa Governorate, Yemen, as part of the UAE’s support for the people of the country and to improve their living and economic conditions.

The ERC today distributed 2,500 food baskets to the people of the Hatib district in Shabwa, to ease the burden on local families, in light of the harsh economic conditions witnessed by the country, as a result of Houthi militias' attacks.

The UAE has launched, through its humanitarian arm, the ERC, a series of relief, humanitarian and development projects, to restore some of the damage caused by the Houthi militias in Shabwa.
