Att.Editors: The following item is from the Emirates News Agency (WAM)

HADRAMAUT,Dec 6 (WAM) - The United Arab Emirates (UAE) humanitarian aid authority Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) signed two Memoranda of Understanding with Yemen's General Authority for Rural Water Supply Projects and Ministry of Education, to provide support for rural water projects and educational development initiatives in the Wadi Hadramaut area.

Ahmed Al-Neyadi, Deputy Head of the ERC team in Hadramaut, reaffirmed the ERC's keenness to support and improve infrastructure, utilities, and education sector projects, as well as providing humanitarian relief support to the residents of the Hadramaut Governorate, as per the directives of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

He explained that the aid authority actively seeks to assist in development projects that help solve water shortages in drought-affected areas. "The ERC is keen to implement this necessary project to provide clean drinking water to Yemeni citizens," he emphasised.

Al-Neyadi went on to say that these two agreements are an embodiment of the UAE's keenness to improve the humanitarian situation in Yemen, and reinforces ERC's initiatives to alleviate the suffering of Yemeni citizens, and support infrastructure projects to cope with the dire conditions they face.

The Hadramaut Governorate Under-Secretary praised the great efforts exerted by the UAE and the ERC to support the people in the governorate in particular, and Yemen in general, across various sectors. (WAM) (END/2017)
