Kuwait dis­trib­utes money coupons to dis­placed Iraqis

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The State of Kuwait on Tues­day dis­trib­uted money coupons to dis­placed Iraqi peo­ple in the north­ern city of Irbil to buy their needs from shops. Kuwait is keen on help­ing the dis­placed Iraqis as part of its “Kuwait by your side” cam­paign, and is dis­tribut­ing money coupons to the dis­placed from Mo­sul, Salahud­din and An­bar to give them free choice to buy their own needs from shops, said Dr Omar Al-Kan­deri, Con­sul Gen­eral in Irbil.

The aid, whether the ones in Iraq or other parts of the world, are upon in­struc­tions of His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber AlSabah to help the needy peo­ple, he said. Kuwait, said Kan­deri, would dis­trib­ute the money coupons to 10,000 fam­i­lies.

The Kuwaiti hu­man­i­tar­ian as­sis­tance, he added, would also in­clude health and ed­u­ca­tion ser­vices, or build­ing of shel­ters. Kuwait launched its cam­paign in Iraq’s Kur­dis­tan prov­ince in the mid­dle of 2015, and has dis­trib­uted around 170,000 food bas­kets so far. —KUNA
