Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

BAGH­DAD: The State of Kuwait has opened a makeshift school and a drink­ing water treat­ment plant at al-He­jra camp for the dis­placed per­sons in the city of Amiriyah Fal­lu­jah in An­bar Prov­ince, west of Iraq. The school, con­sist­ing of car­a­vans as classes, and water plant were in­au­gu­rated to serve in­ter­nally dis­placed per­sons in the city, as part of Kuwait’s hu­man­i­tar­ian re­lief cam­paign in Iraq, Kuwait’s Am­bas­sador to Bagh­dad Salem Al-Za­manan said yes­ter­day.

Es­tab­lish­ing such fa­cil­i­ties at the camp aims to al­le­vi­ate suf­fer­ing of dis­placed peo­ple in the city and curb neg­a­tive ef­fects caused by the large de­struc­tion of main fa­cil­i­ties there, he said. He re­vealed that Kuwait’s re­lief cam­paign will con­tinue open­ing fur­ther makeshift schools, and med­i­cal and mo­bile clin­ics as well as dis­tribut­ing more food bas­kets to the dis­placed.

Mean­while, Iraq’s med­i­cal united so­ci­ety for re­lief and de­vel­op­ment said the inau­gu­ra­tion of this school is part of an in­te­grated pro­gram that in­cludes five makeshift schools at the camp. Sattar Ra­jab, a mem­ber of so­ci­ety, added the school has 16 class­rooms with a ca­pac­ity of 400 stu­dents. The water plant’s ca­pac­ity is 1,000 cu­bic liters per hour.

Some se­nior Iraqi of­fi­cials, in ad­di­tion to the Kuwaiti am­bas­sador, were present in the inau­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony. Kuwait had pre­vi­ously handed out hu­man­i­tar­ian aid, food bas­kets and school bags to the dis­placed at sev­eral camps in Bagh­dad and other gov­er­norates.
