A delegation from the Emirates Red Crescent Organization has visited Sana'a recently for six days during which the vice president of the republic of Yemen Abd Rabeh Mansour Hadi was presented the Crescent shield for their role in aiding the development in Yemen and for supporting humanitarian issues; he also inaugurated the offices of the Emirates Red Crescent in Yemen.
