KUWAIT: Kuwait’s Am­bas­sador to the Le­banese Repub­lic, Ab­de­laal Al-Qe­naei, wel­comed Zain’s vol­un­teers team and Kuwait Red Cres­cent So­ci­ety’s (KRCS) of­fi­cials in the head­quar­ters of the Kuwaiti Em­bassy in Beirut. The meet­ing came as part of the hu­man­i­tar­ian visit Zain’s vol­un­teers par­tic­i­pated in to aid Syr­ian refugees and dis­placed fam­i­lies in North­ern and South­ern Le­banon as well as Be­qaa Gover­norate. The visit came as part of Zain’s on­go­ing hu­man­i­tar­ian strate­gic part­ner­ship with KRCS.

The meet­ing wit­nessed the at­ten­dance of Deputy chief of mis­sion Mo­hammed Al We­qayan and Head of KRCS del­e­ga­tion to Le­banon Dr Me­saed Al Enzi. Am­bas­sador Ab­de­laal Al Qe­naei rec­og­nized Zain’s ef­forts as one of the first Kuwaiti pri­vate sec­tor or­ga­ni­za­tions that par­tic­i­pated in such an ini­tia­tive of this scale, and de­scribed it as a pride to the Kuwaiti peo­ple.

Hu­man­i­tar­ian projects

Mean­while, Zain ex­pressed its sin­cere gratitude and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the ef­forts ex­erted by the Kuwaiti Em­bassy in Le­banon, the Kuwait Red Cres­cent So­ci­ety, the Le­banese Red Cross, and the Qatar Red Cres­cent So­ci­ety. These ef­forts were key in fa­cil­i­tat­ing the move­ment of Zain’s vol­un­teers to refugee camps and hu­man­i­tar­ian projects in North­ern and South­ern Le­banon as well as Be­qaa Gover­norate.

Zain’s team, con­sist­ing of em­ploy­ees who vol­un­teered for this trip, trav­eled to Le­banon with an of­fi­cial KRCS del­e­ga­tion, through which they vis­ited mul­ti­ple KRCS­sup­ported des­ti­na­tions to of­fer aid and sup­port. The trip in­cluded a visit to the Le­banese Bak­eries project where over 50 mil­lion bread loafs has been dis­trib­uted to dis­placed fam­i­lies since the start of the cri­sis. The team also vis­ited Dar Al-Zahra Hos­pi­tal, which spe­cial­izes in pros­thetic parts where aid is pro­vided to in­jured in­di­vid­u­als.

The trip also in­cluded a visit to Orange Nas­sau, a gov­ern­men­tal hos­pi­tal that spe­cial­izes in Dial­y­sis and of­fers treat­ment to refugees and dis­placed fam­i­lies on a daily ba­sis. Ad­di­tion­ally, the trip in­cluded a field visit to sev­eral camps where win­ter clothes and es­sen­tials were dis­trib­uted to refugees and an en­ter­tain­ment event was held for chil­dren and fam­i­lies.

Zain’s vol­un­teers also vis­ited a water plant and dis­trib­uted water to the fam­i­lies, and vis­ited the ther­mal in­su­la­tion project were they helped in­stalling ther­mal in­su­la­tors on tents in the refugee camps. The team also dis­trib­uted aid re­lief kits on five dif­fer­ent camps.
