International Red Cross heaps praise on Kuwait’s humanitarian work

GENEVA, The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) on Tuesday praised Kuwait’s profound contributions towards global humanitarian endeavors.

Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) is always at the “forefront” of world charities providing urgent aid for some of the world’s most impoverished nations, said (IFRC) president Francesco Rocca, as he met with KRCS chief Dr. Hilal Al-Sayer.

On his talks with the Kuwaiti official, Rocca said he was acquainted with KRCS’ latest efforts to come to the aid of those less fortunate, pointing out that teamwork is key to ensure the welfare of humanity.

Commending the IFRC’s dedication to humanitarian causes, Al-Sayer said the Kuwaiti charity is eager to work closely with the International Red Cross in support of those whose lives have been torn apart by conflict.

He went on to describe the copious amounts of aid Kuwait has given impoverished countries as an “indelible mark” the Gulf country has left on the humanitarian arena.
