The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has signed an agreement for upgradation of the sewage network in the governorate of Aden in Yemen, at a total cost of Dh3 million ($816,616).

The signing was held in the presence of Yemeni Prime Minister Ahmed Obaid bin Daghr. It provides for raising the network's operational capacity by replacing the dilapidated drainage pipes and joints, reported state news agency Wam.

Bin Daghr lauded the UAE's humanitarian efforts in Yemen and referred to the vital role played by the ERC in the liberated governorates of Yemen.

Mohammed Saeed Al Ketbi, the director of the ERC office in Aden, said the assistance was part of the UAE's approach to help the brotherly Yemenis overcome the difficulties caused by the Houthi coup, it added.
