Yemeni people hail Sheikh Khalifa's generous gesture

posted on 25/12/2008: 616 views

Sana'a - The government and the people of Yemen hailed the generous gesture of UAE President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who ordered to build a thousand homes for those who lost homes in the recent floods in Yemen.

The tropical storm and torrential rain which hit largely the eastern province of Hadhramawt earlier in October had caused extensive damage in the region. Hundreds of homes made of mud brick had collapsed in the flooding.

A delegation from the UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) headed by the Assistant Secretary General for Relief and Projects Saleem Al Junaibi is in Yemen to carry out the preparatory work for executing the humanitarian project ordered by Sheikh Khalifa.

Following Sheikh Khalifa's orders, HH General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, deputy prime minister of UAE and Chairman of UAE Red Crescent Authority (UAERCA) had given directives for fast implementation of the Presidential orders.

The delegation was received on Tuesday by the UAE ambassador to Yemen Abdullah Matar Al Mazroui, who held a meeting with them to discuss the primary concept of the project.

Yemen's Deputy Prime Minister for Domestic Affairs Sadiq Amin Abu Ras said that UAE's humanitarian assistance was the first one to arrive in Yemen in the wake of the disaster.

Several parts of Yemen, including the capital Sana'a were affected in the flash floods which swept away many homes.

UAE-RCA had rushed humanitarian aid to Yemen immediately during the floods, in an effort to alleviate sufferings. Convoys carrying relief aids from UAE continue to reach in Yemen.

According to Chairman of the Board of Directors of UAE-RCA Dr. Ali Abdullah Al Ka'abi the developmental projects ordered by the President constitute the second phase of the already running humanitarian works of UAERCA.

Several government officials and social figures in Yemen praised the humanitarian efforts of UAE, especially the initiative to build a thousand homes for those who lost their homes in the flood. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
