Yemen: Arrival of WFP Vessel to Aden a Major Breakthrough

On 21 July 2015, a United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) ship arrived at the Yemeni port of Aden - the first WFP-chartered vessel to berth at the port since conflict erupted in Yemen in March. The MV Han Zhi arrived with 3,000 metric tons of food – enough to feed 180,000 people for one month – at Aden’s oil port of Al-Buraiqa.
