Abu Dhabi, (IINA) - The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) on Thursday launched the first phase of a new food aid campaign on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan to help Yemenis in rural areas, WAM reported.

As part of the campaign, the ERC's team distributed food packages to underprivileged people in the towns of Zinjibar and Khanfar in Abyan governorate, south-western Yemen.

The aid is timely and helps the right people, who are the most disadvantaged in these areas, said Ahmed Nasser Awadh, coordinator of the campaign.

The beneficiaries thanked the leadership, government, and people of the UAE for supporting Yemen. They also thanked the ERC for making huge efforts to help the Yemeni people.
