KUWAIT: Chairman of Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) Hilal Al-Sayer said on Monday 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, which falls on January 9, 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 world 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 world 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 world 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.
