Kuwait dis­trib­utes 1,000 liters of white fuel to dis­placed in Mo­sul

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The State of Kuwait on Mon­day handed out 1,000 liters of white fuel used for heat­ing to the dis­placed Iraqis in the Khazir camp in eastern Mo­sul. Kuwait’s Con­sul Gen­eral in Irbil Omar AlKan­dari said “we doled out this amount of fuel to 1,500 dis­placed fam­i­lies in the camp,” ad­ding that the aid is part of the cam­paign launched to meet needs of dis­placed Iraqis in win­ter. He stressed Kuwait’s con­tin­ued aid, es­pe­cially fuel, to all fam­i­lies liv­ing in the camp.

The gen­er­ous aid pro­vided by Kuwait has been dis­pensed upon the hu­man­i­tar­ian ini­tia­tive by His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber AlSabah who has been named in 2014 by the UN in New York as a “Hu­man­i­tar­ian Leader” and Kuwait as a “Hu­man­i­tar­ian Cen­ter” for such ef­forts.

“Be­ing keen on al­le­vi­at­ing suf­fer­ing of dis­placed brothers, we have been spar­ing no ef­fort to of­fer var­i­ous aid to them through dif­fer­ent meth­ods,” he said. The con­sul thanked Kuwait and those who are re­spon­si­ble for im­ple­ment­ing the Amir’s ini­tia­tive, re­fer­ring that oil that has been handed out to the dis­placed is in­suf­fi­cient.

In the mean­time, Iraq’s Min­istry of Dis­place­ment and Mi­gra­tion said that the num­ber of dis­placed peo­ple from Nin­eveh ex­ceeded 120,000 since the be­gin­ning of mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions to lib­er­ate Mo­sul. Min­is­ter Jassem Mo­hammed Al-Jaff also said in a state­ment that the num­ber of dis­placed peo­ple hosted by the min­istry’s camps reached 120,680 since the start of lib­er­at­ing Nin­eveh.

The min­istry’s field teams are con­tin­u­ing re­ceiv­ing and aid­ing the dis­placed fam­i­lies, he stressed. United Na­tions High Com­mis­sioner for Refugees in Iraq (UNHCR) has wel­comed Kuwait’s con­tri­bu­tion to dis­tribut­ing aid to the dis­placed Iraqis in win­ter.— KUNA
