The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has signed an agreement to build a secondary school in Al Houta, Yemen.

The ERC aims to launch infrastructure projects in the education sector and help local students, whose families are unable to provide for their daily transportation costs, to complete their education, Mohammed Saif Al Muhairi, ERC representative in Shabwa Governorate, said in a statement.

Al Muhairi added that the UAE’s support for the Yemeni people is part of its humanitarian and relief plan to assist liberated Yemeni governorates, including Shabwa, and restore and reconstruct their local infrastructure.

Last month, the ERC signed an agreement to carry out restoration activities at the College of Oil and Minerals in Shabwah, Yemen. The scope of the project includes construction and restoration of the college lecture halls.
