ERC distributes Zakat Al Fitr to 1,270 families in Yemen


The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has started the distribution of Zakat Al Fitr in Mukalla, in Yemen.

It's set to benefit around 1,270 families facing challenging economic and living conditions in the region.

The initiative is part of ERC's broader mission to aid vulnerable families and provide necessary assistance, given the country's ongoing challenges. 

It aligns with various charitable projects undertaken by the UAE during Ramadan, such as distributing Ramadan Rations, Ramadan dates, the Eid clothing project, and Zakat Al Fitr.
