Second plane with medical aid reaches Yemen

11 April 2015

A second ICRC plane was able to land in Sana'a this morning. Its cargo included 32 tonnes of urgently-needed medical supplies. A first batch of medical aid has already been sent to Aden; other violence-affected areas will be reached in the coming days. In total, some 53 tonnes of relief aid have made their way to Yemen over the past few days. An ICRC surgical team, which arrived in Aden earlier this week, has been working round the clock to save lives.
