A group of 90 injured Yemenis arrived in New Delhi on Friday for medical treatment, at the expense of the United Arab Emirates, UAE.
This humanitarian medical gesture is part of the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and is under the supervision of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of the Khalifa bin Zayed Foundation.
The Khalifa bin Zayed Foundation is covering all the treatment costs, as part of the UAE’s ongoing efforts to ease the suffering of the Yemeni people and to stand with them in their difficult times.
UAE diplomats in India welcomed the injured and their companions and finalised their arrival procedures.
The Foundation earlier covered the bill for the treatment of the 90 Yemenis in Indian hospitals, who sustained their injuries during attacks by the Houthi militias. It also provides for the immediate means of transporting the wounded to approved hospitals.
