Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

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.
