KUWAIT: The Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) has distributed 1,000 food packages and 250 frozen chicken boxes to residents and workers in the coronavirus locked down area of Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh in Farwaniya governorate. Each package contains a variety of basic foodstuff sufficient to feed a family of five members for a month, KRCS Director General Abdulrahman Al-Oun said.
He pointed out that the KRCS is keen on supporting the government’s efforts to control the novel coronavirus spread and to help citizens and residents who are affected by the lockdown and other preventive measures. The KRCS is also coordinating with the Ministry of Interior to distribute ready-made meals and food parcels to tradesmen and itinerant workers in the fully isolated districts of Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh and Al-Mahboula.
The heavily populated areas of Jleeb Al Shuyoukh and Mahboula, where predominantly expatriate laborers live, have been placed in complete isolation since April 6 after being emerged as hotspots for the coronavirus. – KUNA
