WAM San’aa, May 8th, 2013 (WAM) — The Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation has continued the sixth phase of distribution of food assistance to poor and needy people as part of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s AED 500 million food aid programme for Yemeni people.

The assistance comes in the light of Sheikh Khalifa’s keenness to alleviate the daily suffering of the Yemeni people, and embodies the strong relations between the two peoples.

The Foundation’s sixth phase has targeted needy families in different areas in Sana’a, in cooperation between the UAE Embassy in Yemen, the Khalifa Foundation and other relevant departments in the region.

The gesture comes in the light of the UAE’s keenness to provide aid directly to the Yemeni people through a humanitarian project, including establishing distribution centres in a number of areas.

The beneficiaries expressed their happiness and extended thanks and appreciation to Sheikh Khalifa for his benevolence.
