The Kuwaiti institutions’ work in providing relief for needy countries focused last week on the relief level in Yemen, Indonesia and Bangladesh, while it focused on education in Lebanon, development in Tunisia and health in Sudan.


Last week in Yemen, the Kuwait Relief Society has announced a package of relief aid to the people of Al-Mahara governorate through its local partners.

This step comes in response to the appeal of the Yemeni government and the local authorities in the province following the declaration of a disaster zone due to the storms that caused heavy losses in public and private property, said the society Board Chairman Ahmad Al-Jasser.

Jasser expressed hope that this aid will contribute to alleviating the suffering of the affected families and meet their needs.

Meanwhile, the Kuwait Food Bank had launched a campaign to aid the victims of Indonesia’s floods and earthquake, which resulted in the death of over 2,000 individuals and severe damages to infrastructure.

Director General of the Kuwait Food Bank, Salem Al-Hamar said that the natural disasters, which hit the city of Palu in the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, had led to considerable losses and destruction beyond imagination, affirming that the campaign launched by the bank was aimed at easing a bit of the suffering felt by the victims.

The campaign is within His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s directives to aid all those in need worldwide, said Hamar who called on the people of Kuwait to contribute to this just and humanitarian cause by providing their donations to the bank headquarter in Al-Adailiyah area.
