Coronavirus in KuwaitKuwait

KRCS distributes thousands of meals to people in need

KUWAIT: Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) is exerting huge efforts in delivering aid to people in need inside Kuwait in light of the exceptional situation which forced many people out of job following a lockdown, and to encourage people to stay indoors after the government imposed to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

As part of these efforts, KRCS has distributed over 1,900 food baskets to school janitors, as well as 3,000 to Kuwait University and Public Authority for Applied Education and Training workers after the government shut down schools until the fall. KRCS also distributed 22,000 meals to laborers in Sabhan, Amghara, Sharq, Bnaid Al-Gar and Mahboula, the non-profit organization said in a statement.

Furthermore, more than 1,500 volunteers have registered with KRCS to provide aid to citizens and expatriates, KRCS said, adding that they are working hand-in-hand with Ministry of Health workers at the four government-designated quarantine sites: Khairan Resort, Khalifa Resort, Wataniya Resort and Aquamarine Resort. – KUNA
