President Abdrabu Mansour Hadi on Sunday gave orders to supply all requirements to distribute and deliver a UAE humanitarian aid donation, Saba reported.
At his meeting with Abdullah Matar, the UAE ambassador to Sanaa, Hadi urged the authorities to supervising the distribution process well to ensure aid reach the affected people without losses or intercession, the agency said.
"The UAE aid should go directly from the state budget to the affected people," he said, according to Saba.
The meeting discussed how to give aid to the affected Yemeni people through the Social Welfare Fund and the Labour Ministry in coordination with the Khalifa Foundation, it said.
President of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa, earlier this month ordered the government to give about $136 million in urgent humanitarian aid to Yemen, amid warnings of starvation and the humanitarian situation affecting about ten million people in the poorest country in the region.
The UAE aid, which included foodstuffs and baby milk products, coincided with emergency humanitarian relief from other countries and agencies.
Last month, the UN said it had rallied about $450 million in emergency aid, which would account for about 40% of Yemen's humanitarian needs at the moment.
Recently, international agencies have warned Yemen is on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe, calling for emergency aid to help about ten million people in separate areas.
Also, reports have surfaced about a million children below five are suffering from malnutrition and need urgent help.
The 2011 events including the mass protests against the regime added to the alarming woes of Yemen, where a person lives on only two US dollars a day.
