posted on 01/09/2010: 783 views



The UAE Embassy in Sana'a dispatched a shipment of urgent food assistance donated by the Khalifa bin Zayed Charity Foundation from Yemen to Somalia.

Abdullah Mattar Al Mazrouie, UAE Ambassador in Sana'a, said more than 500 tons of food supplies were sent from Yemen in order to save time and energy.

He added the quick response by the Khalifa Foundation aimed at meeting the needs of Somali people in the holy month of Ramadan.

The UAE envoy praised the Foundation humanitarian role in a number of countries including Comoros Island, Eritrea, Somalia and Yemen.

Somali Ambassador in Yemen Mohammed Hassan lauded the swift humanitarian gesture as not alien to the Khalifa Foundation which sensed the acute food crisis the people in Somalia are facing. The food aid, he added, would substantially alleviate the difficult circumstances the Somalis are undergoing.

On the occasion of Ramadan, the Foundation is implementing a fast-breaking programme in Kharaz camp for Somali refugees in Yemen in coordination with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). A similar programme is also being carried out in Yemen.

The Foundation has made a qualitative leap in its humanitarian and developmental activities which are now covering more than 40 countries. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
