Kuwait delivers 8 tons of food to IDPs in N Iraq

Kuwait’s Consulate General in Irbil has delivered some eight tons of food to internally displaced persons in Ashti camp in Sulaymaniyah governorate of Iraqi Kurdistan.

The food is provided by Kuwait Society for Relief as part of “Kuwait by Your Side” campaign, and as an implementation of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al­-Ahmad Al­Jaber Al-Sabah’s generous humanitarian initiative, Kuwait’s Consul General in Irbil Dr. Omar Al-­Kandari told KUNA on Friday.

Kuwait will continue to support Iraqi IDPs in all around the country, particularly during winter season, Al­Kandari said, noting the Ashti IDP Camp houses a large number of displaced families.

He also pointed out that his meeting with Sulaymaniyah Governor Dr. Hafal Abu Baker, earlier, addressed ways to secure the delivery of Kuwaiti aid to IDPs in the province. Furthermore, Al­-Kandari wished the displaced ones safe and swift return to their homelands.
