This is part of the UAE's humanitarian efforts to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people and deliver healthcare services to remote areas.

He added that 15,784 beneficiaries had so far benefited from the clinic services.
Last week, Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region and Chairman of the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC), highlighted the ERC’s keenness to adopt local initiatives aimed at achieving sustainable giving and providing low-income and vulnerable families with fixed incomes.
He made this statement while visiting the ERC’s headquarters in Abu Dhabi, where he was briefed about the objectives of the "Hifz Al Naema" and "Al Ghadeer UAE Crafts" projects.
During the visit, Sheikh Hamdan said that the Hifz Al Neama Project will help rationalise consumption and recycle excess food, clothes and furniture, by donating them to people in need.
The project also encourages individuals and public and private entities to connect with needy people and enable them to benefit from excess food, he added.
He then reviewed the objectives of the Al Ghadeer UAE Crafts Project, which aims to improve the living standards of involved craftswomen and support them financially and socially, as well as highlight the UAE’s heritage and cultural identity.
Sheikh Hamdan was accompanied during the visit by Ahmed Mattar Al Dhaheri, Director of the Ruler Representative in Al Dhafra Region’s Office, Hamoud Al Junaibi, ERC Secretary-General, and several officials.
He was then briefed about the strategy, plans, initiatives and achievements of the Hifz Al Neama Project, which, since its launch in 2004, has supported beneficiaries inside and outside the country.
The project’s food donations have benefitted more than 700,000 people with a total of 1,000,147 distributed products worth Dhs21 million. It has also distributed 332,000 pieces of clothing worth Dhs143,000, which benefitted nearly 16,000 people, as well as furniture valued at Dhs900,000 that benefitted some 300 families.
The ERC’s winter aid campaign beneficiaries are located in Jordan, Syria, Bosnia, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Latvia, Russia, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Greece, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Estonia, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Georgia, Moldova, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.
An ERC delegation, led by Hamoud Abdullah Al Junaibi, Deputy Secretary-General of the ERC Marketing and Donations Collection Division, inaugurated the "Attaya School" in Manila, which has eight classrooms for 500 students, as well as administration offices and service facilities.
The redeployment plan of the UAE forces in Hodeidah, operating under the Arab coalition, does not mean there will be a power vacuum if we take into consideration the efficiency of the Yemeni legitimate forces, a UAE official source said.
The project aims to enhance the effectiveness of the creek’s retaining walls by upgrading the dock, reconstructing sections that have been damaged and dilapidated over the past 50 years and preventing potential flooding during harsh weather conditions.
