The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has completed hundreds of projects to address water scarcity in Yemen.
State-held news agency Wam reports that the ERC is currently implementing the Hawarim Qaf Al Awamir Water Project in Hadramaut Governorate, which will benefit some 4,000 people.
The project includes the digging of an artesian well and the linking of a water supply network to local residents.
Secretary-general, Dr Mohammed Ateeq Al Falahi, stressed that the ERC’s initiatives aim to develop, rebuild and support vital sectors, upon the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed.
He added that Sheikh Hamdan is closely monitoring the progress of the ERC’s projects that aim to improve basic services, while encouraging those involved to implement initiatives that will improve the development sectors in governorates suffering from water scarcity.
