The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, has launched its annual Eid al-Fitr campaign in Hadramaut, Yemen.
An ERC team distributed 1,000 vouchers to underprivileged families and those that have lost their primary breadwinner. The coupons will enable individuals to purchase items across various commercial centres in Hadramaut.
The ERC team also visited rural areas surrounding the governorate, distributing Eid clothing to individuals and families.
Hamed Rashid Al Shamsi, and ERC representative in Hadramaut, said that the main objective behind the campaign is to provide Eid clothing to orphans, persons with disabilities, and families with limited income sources, to ease their financial hardships, but also to bring some joy to these individuals on an auspicious occasion, such as Eid al-Fitr.
