Kuwait scrambles to relieve Syrians
Kuwait Red Crescent Society’s (KRCS) urgent operation in Syria is aimed at securing badly-needed food and clothes to the city residents who are experiencing extremely hard conditions, KRCS Chairman said yesterday.
The KRCS, defying surrounding security hazards, has managed to deliver its first batch of humanitarian aid to those in need in the war-battered Aleppo region, in collaboration with the Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS).
Dr Hilal Al-Sayer, the KRCS Chairman, was speaking following speedy dispatch of the first batch of supplies, including food and clothes, to Syrians in Aleppo’s western rural regions and Idlib governorate. A team will be dispatched in few days to northern Syria to coordinate with Qatari teams in delivering the relief supplies to the people of Aleppo, those in the city and the ones who have been locally relocated.
Aggravating humanitarian conditions and the heavy losses suffered by the civilians in Aleppo in recent days have prompted the society to act promptly, Dr Sayer said, appealing to good doers in Kuwait to present donations to help the Syrian people.
