DUBAI: King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre and the UAE Red Crescent on Tuesday handed over seven ambulance vehicles to Yemen’s Ministry of Health, Saudi news agency SPA reported.

The Minister of Health, Dr. Nasser Baoum, said that ambulances delivered to the health sector will be distributed to hospitals in Aden, Hodeidah, Hadramout and Shabwa.

Since the start of the conflict between the Houthis and the internationally recognised government, Yemen has struggled with an economic and humanitarian crisis.

The United Nations Humanitarian Aid office estimates that 10-million Yemenis require emergency assistance and millions of others are struggling to secure water, food and basic shelter.
