KRCS distributes clothes to 400 displaced families

ADEN: Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) has handed out clothes to 400 displaced families in Ma’rib governorate, central Yemen, as part of “Kuwait beside You” campaign, continuing for eighth year running. The relief effort, carried out in collaboration with Estijabah Foundation – KRCS’s local partner, targets needy persons, particularly women and children, said KRCS Director-General Abdulrahman Al-Aoun.

“It aims to alleviate the suffering of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in winter,” Al-Aoun, now leading a delegation from the Society on a visit to Yemen, told KUNA. He reaffirmed KRCS commitment to continue the relief efforts with a view to improving the living conditions of Yemenis through water, healthcare, education and housing projects in collaboration with the Yemeni local authorities and partners.

Meanwhile, Chairman of Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) Hilal Al-Sayer said that the charity would keep offering humanitarian aid to disaster-affected people and the needy both at home and abroad. Speaking to KUNA to mark the KRCS’s 57th anniversary, Al-Sayer said the charity’s activities are considered a landmark in humanitarian and charitable action, based on its response to humanitarian appeals as well as its fast-track field endeavors in different countries.

Since it was founded in 1966, the society has always shouldered responsibility for delivering a message of amity and peace from the State of Kuwait to all peoples who undergo excruciating circumstances through its relief programs and projects worldwide, he added.

Kuwait commits to carrying on promoting its fruitful diplomacy centered on backing global humanitarian action by carrying out its humanitarian aid and initiatives that are deemed a distinguished asset of Kuwait’s foreign policy, thus drawing the attention of countries and organizations to its diplomatic and humanitarian role, he boasted.

Internally, the charity provides relief, educational and medical services to needy families, while, regionally and internationally, it sends relief aid to Yemen, Palestine, Comoros, Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan, Niger, Nepal, the Philippines, Senegal, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, Al-Sayer noted. The Kuwait Red Crescent Society is one of the leading Kuwaiti beacons in the field of humanitarian work.

It plays an integral role in activities and projects both inside and outside Kuwait and is highly appreciated by a large number of international and regional organizations concerned with humanitarian work. – KUNA
