ANKARA, Turkey, A team of Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS), led by its Chairman, Dr. Hilal Al-Sayer, has been engaged in a variety of activities, to support refugees and the displaced from the war-ravaged neighbouring country, Syria.
The programmed activities included hand-over of food supplies to Syrians, who have been relocated to the province of Idlib, signing a number of cooperation accords with Turkish and Qatari relief associations.
The KRCS was the first philanthropic association to reach the displaced in the Idlib countryside and deliver relief aid to them, as part of the campaign, "Cry Aleppo." The Kuwaiti society's field team, in coordination with the Qatari Red Crescent Society, has distributed 500 food parcels, mattresses, child clothes and heating fuel, to those who have taken refuge in Idlib, fleeing Aleppo and other regions in the country.
The KRCS has dispatched 20 truckloads of humanitarian supplies, including mobile clinics, from the border Turkish town of Gaziantep.
The wide-scale relief programme included cooperation accords, valued at USD 2.4 million, with the Qatari society, to provide relief and medical supplies to Syrians in need, three cooperation agreements, worth USD 390,000, with a Turkish relief association in Calis, for the same purpose, in addition to another accord with the Turkish Red Crescent in Gaziantep, to examine relief projects for Syrians who came from eastern Aleppo.
Furthermore, the society has provided backing for an orphanage house in Gaziantep. Dr. A-Sayer himself had personally performed a surgery on a two-year-old Syrian child in Hatay.
The Kuwaiti relief team is pursuing activities in the Syrian-Turkish border region, helping the refugees and organising delivery of much needed supplies to Syrians struggling to survive.
