The UAE has delivered a consignment of 53 school buses to Yemen.

The donation, which arrived in Aden today, forms part of the Emirates’ commitment to supporting education in Yemen’s liberated areas.

Mohammed Nasr Al Shazly, Under-Secretary of the Governate of Aden, thanked the UAE for its continuous support, according to the Emirates’ state news agency, WAM.

Additional assistance provided by the UAE to Yemen’s education sector has included the construction, maintenance, and furnishing of schools; and the renovation of university accommodation.

The UAE’s latest donation follows Emirates Red Crescent’s (ERC) signing of a contract to rehabilitate a school in Yemen’s Hadhramaut Governorate. The project, which will be conducted in conjunction with Shakhmar Contracting Company, will see Daw’an District’s Shabaat School ready to welcome pupils in 40 days’ time.

The UAE provided $2.2bn (AED8bn) of aid to Yemen between April 2015 and April 2017, according to WAM.

Approximately $43.6m (AED160.1m) of this money has been invested in Yemen’s education sector.
