Kuwait dispatches further aid aircraft to Yemen's Socotra
(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) By Zahra Al-Kathmi KUWAIT, June 2 (KUNA) -- Kuwait has sent another plane carrying humanitarian aid to the hurricane-hit Yemeni Socotra Island in order to ease out the woes of people there, Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) said on Saturday.
The fresh relief initiative came at the behest of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who had instructed that urgent humanitarian aid be dispatched to Yemeni people, KRCS Secretary-General Maha Al-Barjas said in a statement to KUNA.
The Kuwaiti relief aid involving food supplies and blankets mainly aims at alleviating the difficult living conditions of people who have been hit by the devastating Cyclone Mekunu, she said.
The society's field team has already commenced the distribution of relief aid to affected people, especially at coastal areas, Al-Barjas added.
"The society's aid to Yemen is nothing but a duty towards the brotherly Yemeni people who have been undergoing difficult living circumstances," she noted.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) announced the dispatch of the first plane of relief supplies to the people of Socotra island. (end) zac.kaa.m
