(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) AMMAN, April 17 (KUNA) -- Kuwait Red Crescent Society launched the (Iftar) fasting project, which includes distributing meals to 15,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan throughout the holy month of Ramadan.
Kuwaiti Ambassador to Jordan Aziz Al-Daihani told KUNA, during the distribution process that took place at the Jordanian Red Crescent Center in Balqa Governorate, that the Kuwaiti Red Crescent has continued to provide humanitarian support to Syrian refugees in Jordan since the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in 2011.
