More to come: 3,000 tons of food aid dispatched to Yemen

A vessel carrying 3,000 tonnes of food stuff left Zayed Port in Abu Dhabi for the Republic of Yemen to ease the suffering of the brotherly people of Yemen.
The move follows the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to provide urgent food aid and medical assistance to the people of Yemen.
An official source at the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation said that the dispatch of the ship complements the air bridge operation through which 350 tonnes of food stuff has been shipped to Yemen in 11 air trips from Sharjah International Airport to Yemen. He added that the food items included rice, flour, sugar, dates, oil, tea, salt, tuna, chickpeas, beans and others.
The source said the foundation had also sent 100 tonnes of food stuff and medicines to Yemen. –End-
