SOCOTRA: As per the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation (KF), the 16th consignment of relief aid was distributed yesterday in the Republic of Yemen on board an Emirati plane carrying 30 tonnes of food and relief materials to be provided to the people affected by Chapala Cyclone that hit the island and other areas.

An official source at the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation (KF) said the aid is in line with the large humanitarian programme aimed to provide food, relief, and medicines which would help them to overcome life threatening conditions brought upon them by the Chapala Cyclone.

The KF delegation, which accompanied the relief assistance, was received by Saeed Salem Bahguibh, Governor of Socotra, and Dr. Ali Saeed Mukhaini, Director General of Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Hospital, and a number of Yemeni officials.

The UAE relief aid supplies included five tonnes of tents and blankets, five tonnes of medicines and 20 tonnes of various food items.

In his remarks to the Emirates News Agency, WAM, Bahguibh extended his thanks and appreciation to the UAE, saying that Yemenis will not forget this humanitarian gesture as well as the UAE's honourable stances.

He also praised the efforts exerted by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed for their humanitarian support to the population of Socotra in particular and the Yemeni people in general in order to alleviate their dire humanitarian conditions which call for more support in all vital fields.

The KF delegation also visited the Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Hospital and presented medical assistance and medicines in order to support the population of Socotra.

They were briefed on the services being provided and patients' needs in the hospital which contributes towards enhancing medical and clinical services in Socotra and neighbouring areas.
