The Khalifa bin Zayed Humanitarian Foundation’s food aid reaches Khofan. — Wam
(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Khalifa bin Zayed Humanitarian Foundation has brought food assistance to over 500 Yemeni families in hunger-struck Khofan, a remote desert area which lies 120km from Al Hudaydah Governorate.

Residents of the area, which lacks all kinds of services, were quite surprised at seeing the Foundation's team carrying foodstuffs which they were in dire need of, according to the members of the Emirati humanitarian team. This is the first time ever that the desolate area has received humanitarian aid.

The residents expressed gratitude to the President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, for the support. Earlier this year, the President had given orders to the Foundation to allocate Dh500 million to help Yemen counter acute food shortages.
