Kuwait’s KRCS sends relief flight to Sudan

The Kuwaiti Red Crescent Society (KRCS) announced Monday a plane carrying 40 tons of relief supplies took off from Abdullah Al-Mubarak Air base to Sudan, to be delivered to the Sudanese people.

Director of the Disaster and Emergency Department at KRCS, Yousef Al-Miraj, said in a statement to KUNA the plane was in a framework of the humanitarian aid and efforts provided by Kuwait to the countries in need, especially in Sudan, which was recently exposed to floods as a result of heavy rains.

He mentioned that the relief plane carries on board essential humanitarian needs, various relief materials, wheelchairs, medicines, clothes and blankets.

He thanked the donors for their contributions through KRCS’s Relief Sudan Campaign, explaining that the society is coordinating with the Kuwaiti embassy in Khartoum and the Sudanese Red Crescent to look at the necessary needs.

Al-Miraj also expressed gratitude to Kuwait’s Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Foreign Affairs in helping to deliver the aid to affected people.
