UAE playing a historic role in Yemen

(Aden) – The UAE has played a historic and strategic role in Yemen as part of the Saudi-led Arab coalition. Following the liberation of Aden, the UAE focused on supplying urgent aid to the city and nearby areas.
The range of help the UAE is giving Yemen is vast, covering food and relief supplies, rebuilding schools, providing generators and sanitation, operating hospitals and even manning the air traffic control in Aden.
The total cost of power generating projects was Dh217.3 million. The power station that was provided by the UAE contributes to generating 90 per cent of power used to provide lighting in various affected areas
The recapturing of the oil and gas-rich Marib, famous for its 4,000-year-old dam, has immense symbolic value. It was the founding father of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who had ordered the rebuilding of the dam in 1984 at a cost of $100 million (Dh367.8 million).
It is estimated that about 14.7 million Yemenis now depend on humanitarian aid.
