Red Crescent directs 6 food-laden relief trucks to Yemen

The Kuwait Red Crescent Society on Monday sent 6 trucks with 109 tons of aid and food to Yemen through Saudi Arabian territory, as part of the association’s campaign to provide urgent aid and relief to the affected region.

The Director General of the Association, Abdul Rahman Al-Awn, said in a statement to the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the association aims to help displaced Yemeni families during the holy month of Ramadan, stressing the importance of helping brothers in Yemen, fulfilling their needs and alleviating their suffering in these difficult circumstances.

Al-Aoun added that this aid comes within the series of charitable and humanitarian works held by the Society during the holy month of Ramadan in Yemen and other countries, explaining that the timing and size of the shipment reflects the association’s keenness to alleviate the suffering of the brotherly Yemeni people during the holy month.

He stated that the association is also working to buy from the Yemeni local market to provide food baskets to lessen their suffering under the current conditions, especially the displaced in the Yemeni governorates.

He pointed out that this convoy is part of the assistance provided by the government and people of Kuwait to the brotherly Yemeni people, stressing that the association is implementing continuous relief campaigns aimed at improving the living lives of brothers in Yemen. Through the distribution of humanitarian and relief assistance and the implementation of development and medical projects, Red Crescent wants to help them overcome the difficult conditions they are living in.

He stated that this batch of humanitarian aid will be carried out in cooperation with the Humanitarian and Relief Response Network, to be distributed in several Yemeni governorates.

He explained that the association financed many relief projects in Yemen, including health centers, support for hospitals, providing food, health and energy materials, adopting a number of orphans from an educational point of view, and supporting Yemeni brothers in the Socotra Archipelago through the use of solar energy to light the village of Daba Karaja in the archipelago.

Al-Aoun pointed out that helping brothers in Yemen requires great support from the Gulf and Arab Red Crescent societies, stressing the importance of the interaction and response of international organizations with the brothers in Yemen, especially the ones displaced.
