The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, yesterday sent an urgent shipment of food and relief supplies to the Yemeni island of Socotra to aid locals affected by Cyclone Chapala.

The humanitarian gesture is in implementation of the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and the follow up of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in the Western Region, and Chairman of the ERC.

A cargo plane carrying 20 tonnes of essential supplies such as food, medicine, blankets, tents and clothing has been dispatched to help people affected by the hurricane, as part of large-scale humanitarian efforts being carried out by the ERC across Yemen.

Dr. Mohammed Atiq Al Falahi, ERC's Secretary-General, said that the ERC launched the humanitarian programme targeting those affected in an effort to alleviate their suffering following the severe damage that the cyclone has caused on the island. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates-international-aid/1395287547460.html
