The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has signed an agreement to provide funding for a number of renovation projects in Yemen, it has been announced.

According to UAE state news agency, WAM, the projects covered by the agreement include the refurbishment of Ataq Central Hospital, Henisham Secondary School for Boys, Arwa Secondary School for Girls, Azzan Secondary School for Boys, Azzan Primary School for Boys and Girls, and Hafsa Primary School.

The facilities that have been identified for renovation are located in Ataq and Mayfa’a, in the country’s Shabwa Governorate.

During the signing ceremony, Mohammed Saif Al Muhairi, head of the ERC in Shabwa, stressed the organisation’s goal of restoring and rehabilitating local schools, hospitals, and health centres, WAM reported.

The agreement is reportedly part of the UAE's ongoing efforts to support development projects in Yemen.

Earlier in August, it was revealed that the UAE has awarded a grant worth $817,000 (AED3m) to Yemen's Al Dhale Governorate to cover the costs of two new schools and the rehabilitation of 16 schools that have been damaged by conflict in the area.
