UAE sends 1,000 tonnes of relief supplies to people affected by drought in Somalia

To help the millions of people impacted by the worst drought Somalia has experienced in decades, UAE sent an Emirati ship carrying more than 1,000 tonnes of food and humanitarian supplies.

In accordance with President Sheikh Mohamed’s orders, the vital shipment was brought to the port of Mogadishu in the African country.

Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation, and Emirates Red Crescent supervised the delivery mission.

Families in need and those who have been displaced are now receiving supplies from the authorities.

The aid is expected to support about 2.5 million people affected by severe droughts caused by the lack of rain for three consecutive seasons. BKM/ Expat Media
