Kuwait delegation provides relief goods to ‘Yolanda’ victims

The Kuwait Ambassador to the Philippines, H.E. Waleed Ahman Al-Kandari has announced that the 2nd Kuwait Red Crescent Relief delegation has arrived in the country to distribute relief goods to residents of typhoon-devastated Marabut and Basay.

The relief goods, contained in 10,000 family size packs, were put together in cooperation with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). This is a part of a $10 million aid donation by the Government of Kuwait from his His Highness, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, the Amir of Kuwait, for the victims of typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan.

The relief assistance is in solidarity with the Filipino people and in line with the State of Kuwait’s keenness in demonstrating its well-known humanitarian role.

Ambassador Al-Kandari said the first batch of Kuwait Red Crescent Relief distribution took place last December 2013 in Tacloban City in coordination with the Philippine National Red Cross.

Another shipment of relief goods is expected to arrive in Cebu Port within this month from Kuwait Red Crescent. The shipment will comprise of 10,000 pieces of blankets, 10,000 pieces of mosquito nets, 10,000 pieces of jerry cans, 10,000 plastic sheets and 5,000 kitchen sets.

The organization’s long term assistance to the typhoon victims will be in coordination with local Philipine authorities.
