Yemenis Support Ethiopia [Archives:1998/32/Local News]
Spearheaded by the Yemeni-Ethiopian Friendship Society (YEFS), an effort is underway to collect contributions from Yemeni citizens to help Ethiopia. The YEFS established account number 0001-01005398 with the Sanaa branch of the Watani Bank for Trade & Investment for this purpose.
Mr. Izzaddin Ali Hibah, Vice Chairman of the YEFS, has been calling on friends to make donations. “We are gratified by the response. We hope to be able to pass on the money and contributions in kind (mostly medicine) to the Ethiopian side very soon,” he said.
Ethiopian nationals residing in Yemen have also made generous contributions to their country, which is presently at war with neighboring Eritrea.
