UAE aid ship arrives in Mogadishu to support drought relief

An Emirati ship carrying more than 1,000 tonnes of food and relief supplies has arrived in Somalia to support millions of people affected by the country’s worst drought in decades.

The crucial shipment was delivered to the port of Mogadishu in the African country, following directives by President Sheikh Mohamed.

The delivery was overseen by Emirates Red Crescent, the Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation, and the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation.

Authorities began distributing relief aid to families and those displaced in their areas and camps.

The UAE is exerting significant effort to deliver relief to Somali regions affected by the drought caused by a lack of rain for three consecutive seasons.

The UAE’s interest in the humanitarian situation of the Somali people reflects the leadership’s keenness to aid all countries and enhance their ability to address humanitarian crises and mitigate their impact.

Somalia is one of the Horn of Africa’s most drought-affected countries, which causes severe suffering to thousands of people.
