Kuwait Red Crescent Society distributes food boxes in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh

KUWAIT: Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) distributed Saturday 1,000 food boxes to workers and people living in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, which has been under lockdown to curb spread of coronavirus. KRCS gave priority for the distribution of food boxes to areas under lockdown: Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, Mahboula, Farwaniya, Khaitan and Hawally, Society’s Secretary General Maha Al-Barjas said in a statement to the press. She said KRCS continued to support all segments of the society and alleviate their suffering caused by the pandemic. The box, she added, included rice, oil, sugar, tea and canned ready-made food which was enough for a month. KRCS, said Barjas, was distributing food boxes in the isolated areas in order to prevent movement of people living there in line with health authorities’ instructions to restrict movements in those areas. KRCS also delivers food boxes for needy families nationwide, she said, and urged the private sector to contribute to KRCS’s program to curb the pandemic. She thanked the volunteers who were serving their country and participating in the society’s programs. — KUNA
