LEEDS — Kuwait Red Crescent Society distributed 2,500 food baskets to the recently liberated areas in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.
The support coming from neighboring Kuwait is supposed to help the suffering of thousands of people living in the liberated areas of Mosul, which were recaptured by the Iraqi forces from the so-called Islamic State (IS), an Iraqi charity official told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Wednesday.
About 15,000 people have received food aid from Kuwait's humanitarian aid campaign that started at the same time as the ongoing operation to liberate Mosul, said the Barzani Charity Foundation's humanitarian aid distribution chief, Mohammad Bahaeddin.
He also expressed deep appreciation to the state of Kuwait for the nonstop relief aid provided for the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in different areas of Iraq.
Earlier on Wednesday, Kuwait's General Consul in Erbil, Omar Al-Kanderi, inaugurated a Kuwait-funded School for displaced Iraqis in Dohuk province of Kurdistan Region.
