The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, has inaugurated 15 schools since the start of the current year on Yemen's Red Sea Coast.

It re-launched the schools after restoring and furnishing them and providing them with school supplies for over 12,000 students after they were closed for three years due to the destruction caused by Houthi militias.

During the inauguration of Al Zahraa School for Elementary and Secondary Education in Mawza District, Taiz Governorate, Mohammed Al Qamzi, ERC Representative on the Red Sea Coast, said that the ERC is continuing to restore the local education sector, by providing logistical support to local educational institutions that were affected by the destruction caused by the Houthis.

Al Qamzi added that the launch of the school, which will run 22 classes, is part of a series of Emirati projects that aim to support the educational sector in Taiz Governorate and its districts, which have been prioritized by the ERC in all areas, including relief, health, education, services and infrastructure.

The inauguration of the school, which has 960 students, was attended by officials from the Yemeni Ministry of Education, and included an artistic ceremony that began with a speech by the Director-General of Mawza District, who spoke about the giving of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to the Yemeni people and his role in supporting education in Yemen.
