The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) on Saturday delivered state-of-the-art medical equipment to a hospital in Hajr district in the southern Yemeni governorate of Hadramaut as part of the UAE's continued efforts to improve healthcare in the country.
Previously, citizens had to spend three hours to travel to another district to receive medical treatment, noted Director-General of the administration in Hajr district Anwar Al Shazeli.
Restoring services at hospitals to ease the suffering of citizens is a priority for the Emirati humanitarian agency, stated the representative of the Emirates Red Crescent in Hadramaut, Abdullah Al Musaferi, as he took delivery of the equipment along with local officials, according to UAE News Agency (WAM).
The governor's secretary for relief and reconstruction in Hadramaut Dr. Riad Al Jariri thanked the UAE for reviving the healthcare sector and restoring infrastructure in the governorate, WAM reported.
