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