Kuwait’s KRCS sends 20 trucks of relief aid to Syria from Turkey
GAZIANTEP: Twenty trucks filled with relief aid material began their journey from Gaziantep, southeastern Turkey, heading to Syria to provide help to displaced Syrians from eastern Aleppo, Kuwait Red Crescent Society’s (KRCS) chairman Dr Helal Al-Sayer said yesterday.
The convoy - that carries humanitarian aid, winter supplies, and fuel - conveys a message that the Kuwaiti people will always stick to their role in supporting their Syrian brothers and sisters, Sayer said. Kuwaitis will spare no effort to provide urgent humanitarian assistance to Syrians amid the severe winter in their country, he stressed.
The convoy is part of the relief campaign launched by the KRCS under ‘Cry for Aleppo’ to help the displaced from the major Syrian city, Sayer said. He lauded the rapid and positive response and assistance offered by the Kuwaiti benefactors for the aid campaign.
Sayer had announced Tuesday that KRCS plans a series of relief aid campaigns to ease the suffering of Syrian refugees, particularly those facing harsh winter temperatures in refugee camps in neighboring countries.
In a statement upon arrival to Gaziantep to follow up KRCS humanitarian projects and activities on behalf of the Syrian refugees there, Sayer stated that Kuwait would continue its support to Syrian displaced in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. He noted that His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah has made clear directives to offer helping hand to Syrian people to alleviate their suffering. —KUNA
