The UAE Red Crescent Authority is continuing its campaign to distribute food assistance to poor and low-income families in the district of Al-Raida and Qusayar in the governorate of Hadhramaut, to alleviate the impact of the economic crisis coinciding with the year of tolerance in 2019.
In this regard, the Commission distributed 500 food baskets at a rate of (40 tons and 400 kilos) targeting (2500) members of poor and needy families in the Directorate of Al-Raida and Qusayar in Hadramout.
This assistance comes in conjunction with the “Year of Tolerance” to alleviate the suffering of Yemeni families within the framework of the humanitarian approach being undertaken by the United Arab Emirates, in light of the worsening humanitarian conditions that afflict the population of these areas in the province of Hadramout.
For their part, the beneficiaries expressed their thanks and appreciation to the UAE leadership and people for this great help and humanitarian gesture that will contribute to alleviate the suffering of many families in the midst of these difficult living conditions due to the deteriorating economic conditions and the lack of job opportunities for a large number people in the province
It is worth mentioning that the number of food baskets, which have been distributed since the beginning of the year of tolerance, reached 24629 food baskets with a rate of 1,990 tons and 023.2 kilograms, targeting 123,145 members of needy and affected families in Hadramout governorate.
