IRBIL, Iraq, May 28 (KUNA) — Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) distributed on Saturday humanitarian aid to about 1,200 internally displaced families near Irbil, the capital of Iraq’s Kurdistan region.
Kuwait’s Consul General in the region Dr. Omar Al-Kandari told KUNA that the aid is part of the directives of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah seeking to alleviate suffering of the displaced families.
Today’s assistance is the fifth phase of a humanitarian campaign launched by the society this year to aid Iraqi families in the region, he said.
The aid was mainly given to those who are facing tough conditions in terms of a lack of services and humanitarian supplies, and living outside camps, numbering 90 percent, he added.
As part of getting acquainted with these conditions, the consul noted that he met with some internally displaced families, revealing that many are in a dire need of health services and humanitarian supplies.
He reiterated that the campaign will continue providing aid to needy people across Iraq, mainly the region.
For his part, Yousef Al-Meraj, head of KRCS’ disaster and emergency management, told KUNA that the aid, in collaboration with some Iraqi charities, was distributed to the displaced families in the cities of Al Anbar, Mosul, Saladin, Diyala and others.
The campaign aims to provide aid and supplies to the displaced families before the holy month of Ramadan, he said.
He stressed that the society has a comprehensive and an ambitious program aiming to relief those who didn’t benefit from the previous aid. (end) sbr.hm
