AMMAN: Kuwait’s Al-Najat Charity yesterday distributed relief aid to about 2,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan as part of its winter campaign. Head of Resources, Public Relations and Media Sector at the charity Omar Al-Thuwaini said that this is the second aid campaign of the current year, as it included the distribution of food baskets, blankets and other in-kind assistance.

The distribution took place in many areas of Jordan, including the capital Amman, and the Syrian refugee camps, he said. He stressed the association’s keenness, despite global health conditions, to be present and supervise the campaign and deliver the aid in cooperation with the Kuwaiti ministries of Social Affairs and Foreign Affairs.

The current campaign came to support the Syrians in their “most difficult” humanitarian crisis in the modern century, Thuwaini added. He called on Kuwait-based donors to contribute to alleviating the refugees’ suffering, pointing to a severe shortage of medical care and medicines, especially for elderly patients and those with chronic diseases due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreover, Thuwaini affirmed that Al-Najat Charity will continue to meet the humanitarian appeal of the Syrian refugees and launch charitable convoys, implement and develop projects that include building schools and productive work centers. – KUNA
