The projects are part of a series of humanitarian projects implemented by the UAE to help the Yemeni people related to food aid, shelter, social services and sustainable development.
The ERC adopted a comprehensive humanitarian plan prioritising drinking water projects to ensure the stability of the Yemeni people, provide them with decent lives, and prevent them from travelling far to search for drinking water.
The ERC aims to restore, maintain and build strategic central water projects in many populated areas, which were welcomed by local residents.
The projects include the "UAE Water Aid Project," which involves the restoration and digging of 23 drinking water wells in remote villages.
