Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) delegation, currently visiting Yemen's Archipelago of Socotra, has launched the first phase of its development projects there. These include the first phase of Sheikh Zayed City with 161 houses, clinic, school, public council for residents and a mosque with a capacity of 600 worshippers.
When a powerful cyclone struck Yemen's Socotra in November 2015, killing three people and injuring about 100, the UAE came to the rescue of the islanders, offering them whatever they needed. The effort had nothing to do with politics. Nor was it just for show. It was purely a humanitarian effort. Since then, the UAE's humanitarian efforts and initiatives have been in full swing, helping the people of Socotra. This has prompted some to suspect the UAE’s motives. However, those who think – and have been spreading the rumour – that it is seeking to "occupy" the island need to consider some facts.
