DUBAI: Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, the Supervisor General of King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief), on Tuesday said that relief land convoys were sent to Yemen to help those affected by cyclone Luban.
Luban affected Yemeni families living along the coastal areas of Mahrah province on Sunday, who were buffeted by heavy rains accompanied by strong winds.
Worst-hit by cyclone Luban was the city of Ghaydah, which reported immense damage to the infrastructure and network services as well as residential homes, resulting in the displacement of many residents who moved to schools for shelter.
Al-Rabeeah said that the convoys have crossed Wadiha port and are carrying 125 tons of food baskets. KSRelief warehouses in Yemen have sent 100 tents, eight tons of food baskets, 1,500 blankets, and 200 rugs.
Coalition forces, using a C-31 aircraft, are also scheduled to deliver 20 tons of food baskets through a team from KSrelief once the weather improves.
