Coronavirus global response: EU Humanitarian Air Bridge and €70 million in additional aid for Yemen
A new EU Humanitarian Air Bridge flight has departed from Liège, Belgium, with medical and other essential supplies to reinforce the humanitarian response in Yemen. In total, over 220 tons of critical items are being delivered to the most vulnerable Yemenis. It has been facilitated by the collaborative efforts of Sweden and the EU.
This EU Humanitarian Air Bridge makes up for logistical challenges and restrictions in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, since the usual supply lines have been seriously affected.
