KHARTOUM: Kuwait’s Embassy in Khartoum distributed 1,800 food baskets for hundreds of families, orphans and needy to mark Muslims’ holy month of Ramadan, Ambassador Bassam Al-Qabandi said Monday. The food baskets, financed by Kuwait Public Waqf Endowment, were distributed through several days in Khartoum and neighboring areas as well as in houses of orphans, senior citizens and displaced, Qabandi said.
Kuwait is living up to its international status as Humanitarian Center, led by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah who was named by the UN as Humanitarian Leader, he said.
Each basket weights 50 kilograms and consists of rice, sugar, tea, flour, lentil, dates, oil and other basic needs consumed by families in Ramadan. The distribution of baskets, said Qanabdi, coincided with the curfew in Khartoum which was imposed to curb spread of coronavirus. – KUNA
