Att.Editors: The following item is from the Emirates News Agency (WAM)

ADEN,Sep 11 (WAM) - A United Arab Emirates (UAE) humanitarian aid authority Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) aid ship carrying ten containers stocked with cholera medication has arrived in the Port of Aden.

Al Ketbi said the shipment is part of continuous deliveries of cholera medication to Yemen which will be distributed to all Yemeni governorates as needed, especially in provinces where the cholera epidemic is prevalent.
